Is that "both will be on a [i.e. the same] server" or "both [each] will
be on a server [i.e. could be two different ones] in the same domain" ?
Is it a PHP script you will (or have already) written ?

If they are on same machine, you could simply run it via shell or open
However, many PHP scripts will be already set up to get their parameters
via URL options, so it may be easier to to do
(watch out for quoting and urlencoding etc.)
and this might be easier even if it is the same server.
