You can use the exec() function in PHP to run a Python script with the correct permissions. Here's an example:

  1. First, ensure that the Python script has executable permissions. You can set the permissions using the chmod command in the terminal. For example, if your script is named script.py, you can run the following command:
1
chmod +x script.py


  1. In your PHP code, you can use the exec() function to run the Python script. Here's an example:
1
2
3
4
<?php
$output = shell_exec('python /path/to/script.py');
echo $output;
?>


Replace /path/to/script.py with the actual path to your Python script.

  1. Make sure that the PHP script has the necessary permissions to execute the Python script. If your PHP script is running as a specific user, make sure that user has permission to execute the Python script.


That's it! Now your PHP script can run the Python script with the correct permissions. Note that using exec() can be a security risk, so make sure to properly validate and sanitize any inputs to prevent any potential vulnerabilities.
