Hi Moose,

The answer is, you don't. There actually are ways to do it, but it can only done programatically from some programming languages. Your best bet is to change the architecture of the program a little and use something else to communicate between php and the python code. Your best bet is probably to use sockets.

â–ºCan you explain how this code works?

import socket
mySocket = socket.socket ( socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM )
mySocket.bind ( ( '', 2727 ) )
mySocket.listen ( 5 )
while True:
    channel, details = mySocket.accept()
    print 'We have opened a connection with', details
    txt = channel.recv ( 100 )
    print txt
    channel.send ( "This is a response test - attempt 1\0" )
    channel.close()
