  • Command. Specify the full path to the executable file to be run. This includes binary files, shell scripts, and batch files.
  • Fetch a URL. Specify the URL only; there is no need to type the command, such as “curl” or “wget”.
  • Run a PHP script. Specify the path to the script relative to your virtual host directory. You can click the image-74476.pngicon to quickly locate the script file.
