Reading an executable file
I have recently just installed centos for my final year uni project. I want to know if its possible to execute a executable file from the internet?
This is why i want to do that.
For a project i am reading some xml data of monitoring results from a server. If there is a problem with the results a sms message is generated and sent to the user. The user can then respond with a command, like restart, which will innate a linux command to run, for example:
shutdown -r now
Any ideas how i could do this across the web?
