I know it is not possible to simply call a function through ajax. As it only sends data via HTTP headers. However, I am trying to achieve something. I’m trying to execute a piece of PHP code, by the click of a button. The code consists of a
shell_exec(<do shell command here>)
So my ultimate goal is, to have a page load, display a button, which in turn, once clicked, will execute this piece of code (shell command).
I have looked for solutions and have not found one, even though there have been a lot of questions asked with a similar title to mine.
How can I achieve this concept?
