Thanks for your reply,
However , i need this functionality while adding video from my CMS , so to
create cron -job here not possible and also not useful and right thing
So , i need to write shell_exec() in php code only , and as soon as this
code run , i redirect this page to one my file on  server.
But , the problem is shell_exec() command working well , it creating all
required things , and after that it redirect to 500Internal Server Error.
Also note that, i am using Hostgator Shared Server (Window server).
Also , note that this issue is not happening on Linux Hostgator Server.

Thanks ,
