Run PHP scripts in background on Linux

To run a PHP script in background from command line and keep it running even if you exit the terminal, use following syntax:

nohup php script.php < /dev/null &

nohup‘┬áis a POSIX command to ignore the HUP (hangup) signal, enabling the command to keep running after the user who issues the command has logged out.

In Unix-like operating systems, ‘/dev/null‘ or the null device is a special file that discards all data written to it.

‘&’ is to send the process in the background and return the command line prompt.

PHP Video Tutorials by Stefan Mischook

Stefan Mischook as done a great job by putting up some free video tutorials to learn PHP for starters at

From Site:
This is a beginners website/course on PHP created for web designers who have little to no programming experience.
Where most other PHP tutorials and books assume you know programming (or at least, that’s what is seems like …) assumes you need to have things explained (and demonstrated) in non-nerd terms.

Videos are of great quality and loads fast. These videos are also featured in to ‘Web Designer Magazine’. It is such a good resource for starters to learn about PHP in a visual way. So wait no more and go to and learn PHP.

p.s: Stefan is adding more videos very soon in his collection. And it is a part of network

About PHP :: as i understand

PHP is a fast growing open source server side scripting language and written to be used for web programming.

PHP was originally written by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994, mostly people does not exactly know what is the meaning of PHP or why this amazing language is named PHP. Rasmus Lerdorf initially created PHP to display his resume and to collect certain data, such as how much traffic his page was receiving. He called it ‘Personal Home Page Tool’, so now you know why it is named PHP (the present meaning of the PHP is ‘Hypertext Preprocessor’).

In 1997, two Israeli developers (Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans from Israel Institute of Technology) rewrote the parser and formed the base of PHP 3 (changing the language’s name to the recursive initialism “PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor”).

The official launch of PHP came in June 1998 after months of Beta Testing (and the fun begin). The latest version of PHP is 5.2.0 (till Feb 08, 2007, the day i wrote this post). The home of PHP is here

The future of this language is very bright as so many contributors and a huge user base support are helping it to grow BIG .
