    Anyone here know how to do this?

    I'm working on a PHP Script that allow me to edit the configs straight from my web panel, however I can't seem to write or do anything there.

    When i execute:
    echo exec('ls /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d);

    only "virtual.conf" appears..

    that is correct as that is output for

    Code:
    ls /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d
    although it should be at least
    Code:
    ls /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d
    demodomain.com.conf  ssl.conf  virtual.conf

    i have like 7 virtual hosts there, that is not appearing.. also trying this command as a example:

    echo exec('mv /home/nginx/domains/domain.net/public/test.conf /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/test.conf');

    I could only assume it would have to do with permissions, i do have php suhoshin. I removed the .ini, but same issue occurs even when i did that.. so don't think that's the issue.

    Standard disclaimer...

    Centmin Mod is provide as is, so short of scripted related bugs or issues, any further optimisation to the web stack components - nginx, php-fpm, mariadb mysql, csf firewall etc or web app specific configurations are left to the Centmin Mod user to deal with. So I do not provide any free support for such.

    However, Centmin Mod users are free to help each other out and ask questions or give answers on this community forum. My hopes are that this community forum evolves so that more veteran long time Centmin Mod users help new Centmin Mod users out :)

    With that said, you're using wrong php function to do the job... hint exec vs shell_exec ;)

    With that said, I'd be careful writing a web control panel for such if you are not 100% sure what you're doing - but of course doing is part of learning.

    Yeah, none of those works. Shell_Exec doesn't even return anything when using ls or mv.

    I am doing this most likely to learn, just always though it would be cool to have such.. Trying to do it through PHP, using that, cron jobs and exec.. so far it's going horrible.
