Using PHP for many applications is something that makes it very versatile, but when it comes to reading sensors that are connected to the host computer that is running windows, how do you access that part, without making use of a compiler?

So let's think about this, we get an app to remotely do things. Let's say we get a app for a greenhouse, to handle the venting, watering etc? Can we with popen access any file even if not relative to the Apache web server root?

Let's say we build a web app so that we can remotely manage multiple greenhouses remotely.
So we will need some scripts that run by cron jobs to do some of the operations automatically like watering, making ventilation adjustments etc, on a server located at the location of the greenhouses but we need to check things remotely and eventually do some manual adjustments and so on, so we will need part of it to be under Apache, so I presume all project will be under Apache root www folder, can files not related to the Apache and php be accessed with the popen be still accessed?
