See documentation on PHP exec() function


If a program is started with this function, in order for it to continue running in the background, the output of the program must be redirected to a file or another output stream. Failing to do so will cause PHP to hang until the execution of the program ends.

The first argument for signalEvent() is now an "event specification"

<eventName>[@<queueName>][ &]

Available queues

  • now (default)
  • post-process
  • post-render

The ampersand "&" runs the event process detached.
