terminal – PHP exec: hangs, doesn't continue to next line

Questions:

I have a php file ‘run.php’ which I’m running from the terminal. Within this file I have the following lines:

exec(“open-crawlers $port 2>&1”,$out,$code);
echo ‘hello’;

The problem that I’m having is that the terminal hangs after executing the ‘exec’ command; the program doesn’t reach the second line.

How to&Answers:

Try this:

exec("nohup open-crawlers $port >> /tmp/log_file.log 2>&1 &");
echo 'hello';
