I also see
php-win.exe

in the php manual is says

As of PHP 5, a new php-win.exe file is distributed. This is equal to the CLI version, except that php-win doesn't output anything and thus provides no console (no "dos box" appears on the screen). This behavior is similar to php-gtk. You should configure with --enable-cli-win32

but just like it says in the manual nothing happens when i click on it

what is
--enable-cli-win32

u dont need to run them in cli i dont think


just run the file in broswer like normal

ul probably just get a blank page but it will make all the changes it has to


so

'http://localhost/urfolder/import.php'

or watevr it is

Hi,

When you run a CLI script interactively, you normally go to the DOS box, aka Command Prompt window, and type in for example:

cd \my_script_folder
php name_of_my_script.php

This assumes that you have added C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.5 to the PATH. It is best to add it to the System path in Control Panel - System - Advanced - Environment Variables - System Variables.

You can also run CLI scripts through the Scheduler. You need to create a user with enough rights who is in the Administrators group, and create a small .cmd script to run the above commands.
