The executable and argument paths differ for ASPX and PHP files.
None of these files need to be stored on your local computer. They are all stored on your hosting account.
|Argument||-c "(new-object system.net.webclient).downloadstring('http://[domain.tld]\[path]\[file_name]')"|
|Executable||C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Additional\PleskPHP54\php-cgi.exe|
The examples we provide use the following variables:
|[domain.tld]||The hosting account's primary domain|
|[path]||The path to the file|
|[filename]||The name of the file you want to call|
