Subject Re: [users@httpd] Using Apache for UI Automation
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2007 19:14:41 GMT
It seems as though the issue might not be what I thought.  It looks as
though if I fork a process that does the GUI automation, nothing will
be brought up to the screen.  As a side note, I have cygwin installed
on my machine, so I can use bash scripts (most of the scripts were
migrated from a linux box).  Here's a simple php file that shows my
issue:

<p>This page was created at <b>
<?php echo date("h:i:s a", time()); ?>
</b> on the computer running PHP.</p>
<p>
This test does not work...For some reason forking doesn't work!
<?php
     exec("bash -c \"notepad.exe & \"");
?>
</p>

if I were to change the exec to:

exec("start notepad.exe");

it works.  Which I find extremely strange.  Is there anyone who might
know why cygwin forking does not work with apache?
