I'm trying to tar some files with PHP but can't get it to work.
From a linux command line I can use
and it runs down the home tree creating the archive,
but if I put this into a php file as:
exec("/bin/tar -cvzf myfile.tgz /home/",$arrayout,$returnval);
All I get is returnval = 2
I've tried using system and passthru with the same result.
I can't see anything there that needs escaping.
I can't find any reference to a return value of 2 and arrayout
doesnt contain any help.
I'm out of ideas.
can anyone tell me how to do this please?
