I’m having a look at some PayPal scripts/code examples and a lot of them need a php script running via the command line.
I’ve never had to run anything from a command line in PHP before so don’t know where to start at all. I don’t know if I’m using the correct search terms as Google hasn’t helped me answer.
Do I need to use a different application or is there something in cPanel I can use?
I get this error:
INSTALLATION ERROR: Please cd to the /home/site_name/public_html/site and run install.php
Use SSH to access the server via the terminal:
There’s instructions on how to connect via PuTTY, then you can go to the directory where the PHP script is run it like:
If your cPanel has the option to turn on SSH, do it. Then SSH into the server and run the commands –
cd /home/site_name/public_html/site php install.php
