I would be really thankful if someone could please help me with this:
I have a file upload script that uploads csv files to the web server. After the file upload another script called extraction.php starts which reads the contents of the file and puts them to the respective tables in the database.
Now my problem is I want it to execute in the background but I cannot use exec as my application may run on windows as well. So I would need an OS independent solution.
Please help me with this.
