I can run processes with system or exec, but when i try to start a GUI, the process starts but doesnt show. If i test this on comandline it shows but not on server (am using Apache,)

If you're using XWindows on both your local computer and the server, you can use ssh X forwarding to get the server's GUI. Use the -Y option with ssh to enable this. X forwarding must be enabled by the server's sshd.

Hope this helps.
