Best way to run a few commands at once?

  1. Hey everyone,

    I have an IRC bot that I am setting up, to start it I have to go into SSH and type something like....

    cd location/
    NOHUP ./botapp

    Now that is not too hard in itself, but it gets tiring after a while to keep logging into SSH to get it going.

    Is it possible to get the script jump-started in PHP? And PHP execute these commands?

    Now I know PHP may not be the best option, but I just wanted to see if there is a better way to group the commands and possibly execute them at once. Possibly without having to login to SSH. Python script?

    Php can run linux commands.

    Why not just use a shell or bash script though? You could even set up a cronjob for it so it will run hourly/weekly/etc, or set it to run when you ssh in by adding it to your .bashrc file. Or you can have it set to run when your computer boots...

    Go with a shell script :) It's what it's there for ;)
