To run a Node.js script from PHP in XAMPP, you can use the exec() function in PHP to execute the Node.js script. Here's how you can do it:

  1. First, make sure you have Node.js installed on your system.
  2. Create a Node.js script (e.g., script.js) that you want to run from PHP. For example:
// script.js
console.log("Hello from Node.js!");

  1. In your PHP script, use the exec() function to run the Node.js script. Here's an example:
$output = exec('node /path/to/your/script.js');
echo $output;

Make sure to replace /path/to/your/script.js with the actual path to your Node.js script.

  1. Save the PHP script in the htdocs directory of your XAMPP installation.
  2. Run XAMPP and start the Apache server.
  3. Open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost/your_php_script.php to run the PHP script and execute the Node.js script.

You should see the output of the Node.js script displayed in the browser.
