Can external apps access Exop's embedded server?

Hello everybody, I wanna know if it is at all possible to access ExeOutput for PHP’s embedded web server from an external application, like a browser, either locally on the same machine or remotely through TCP.

I think such an option would come in handy, I’ve tried to access http://heserver but of course it timed out so that is not the way to do it, so is there a way or a workaround for this purpose?


It’s not a built-in functions in ExeOutput, but you can create your own server to respond requests using php_sockets.

ExeOutput 2 will have a new project type that generates console applications running PHP without GUI. Maybe this will help.

That’s a great idea, I have not thought of that!

Thank you very much
