Hello ppl

I have an upload script that used to work quite happily uploading to one place. Now we have 4 portals we upload to and I have added switches to each portal. I would like to be able to upload to all of the portals at once in one script but I know that it would time out. I have already increased the php process time in the php.ini file.

Is there a way of running a script in the background so i can set it away when I want to and not have to worry about the script timing out?

I ahve been thinking about scheduled tasks but not sure what would happen if the script took too long to execute and also Scheduled tasks have to run at a certain time. I want to run the script when I want to.

Thanks in advance.
