PHP

  
Hi,

There is a php script that I need to run on the same server as my Outsystems web apps. Is this possible?

Regards.

Hi Roberto,

I made a quick investigation, and it seems like it is possible to install a PHP extension to IIS (you even have the web site http://php.iis.net).

I do not know much about PHP, but if you are looking at using a PHP Web Page, you could call it in an OutSystems application inside an IFRAME (with the PHP extension installed in your IIS executing the PHP web page that is invoked in the IFRAME). If you are talking about a PHP module that can be executed in a command prompt, you could create an OutSystems extension that executes the commmand that executes your PHP module.

I hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Thanks Daniel,

I will use the Iframe.

Would it be best to use http://www.php-compiler.net/
???
I think iFrames have performance issues.

Use sparingly..
