Send command to screen session from web

  • Posted April 5, 2014

I am creating a control panel for minecraft and need to find a way to send commands to a screen session. I can run a shell script from php’s system() command. But when I do:

screen -S minecraft -X stuff “stop”

and switch to my sceen session, it shows stop written but it is as if enter was not pressed after enterin the command

So, how do I simulate enter in shell?

Try adding <code>\n</code> which stands for “new line” after <code>stop</code> (inside the quotation marks). Does that work?
