I am running Ubuntu 16.04 with nginx and php7-fpm.
I am try to run a shell_exec command from a PHP file. However, the command just isn’t executing. No errors are being written to the nginx error log, quite simply, just nothing happens.
I assume that I need to enable shell_exec somewhere but I am not sure where.
If someone could point me in the right direction, I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks so much, Ed.
