    So assume you have got a php or any kind of script that once is visited on a web browser it does something.
    So what will we do is just creating a HTTPWebRequest to excute the script.

    Example : you will call a php script that will unzip a file on server , here is how it will be called.
            private void Run_Unzip()
                HttpWebRequest httpwr = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.website.com/extract.php");
                HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)httpwr.GetResponse();
                StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());
                // the echo result provided by the php script
                string final_Res = sr.ReadToEnd();
                if (final_Res.Contains("ok"))
                    MessageBox.Show("Files Extracted without problem");
    		// show any error message here
    So simply when you call the extract.php and it sucessfully extracted files , it will echo ok on the webpage , so the application
    will read the source code of the page and if there is "ok" then our method worked right.
