Execute a Shell Script from php?

General Tech Bugs & Fixes

( 5 months ago )


I'm trying to generate Android apk files from shell script, I want to execute a shell script file from PHP. When I run the shell script in the terminal, it works perfectly. If I try to run the script using PHP, the shell script doesn't execute all the commands. The ls command in shell script works perfectly, but when executing using PHP, other commands does'nt work. I'm using xampp server in a Linux environment.

My shell script

cd /home/user/AndroidStudioProjects/msvep4247-inghamautogroup-pulse-and/
./gradlew assembleDebug
cp -fr app/build/outputs/apk/app-debug.apk /opt/lampp/htdocs/sample/apk

Shell script ls output

app autolead_data_format.pdf build build.gradle cheek gradle gradlew gradlew.bat lib msvep4247-inghamautogroup-pulse-and.iml settings.gradle

My PHP script

      echo shell_exec('ls');
      echo shell_exec('./');

PHP script ls output generate.php APK

Note: ls outputs file names in the folder

I set all the file permissions for shell script in the xampp server. Can anyone describe where I'm mistaken? Awaiting responses . .
