Gonzalo Ayuso:
Managing Windows services with Symfony/Process and PHP
Nov 01, 2012 @ 10:49:09

In his recent post Gonzalo Ayuso shows how to use Symfony to work with Windows services on the server.

Sometimes I need to stop/start remote Windows services with PHP. It’s quite easy to do it with net commnand. This command is a tool for administration of Samba and remote CIFS servers. [...] Today we are going to create a PHP wrapper for [net rpc service].

He uses Behat to create a feature (test) file, the code behind the features and a service class that handles the actual work of interacting with the service (with methods to do things like stop, start and list running services). Examples of its use are also included.
