Trigger a PHP script from Filemaker?


I'm running a database on FMS9, developing it using FMPAdv9.  I've read several things about triggering a Filemaker script from PHP in a web-published database, but is there a good way to trigger a PHP script from a non-web-published FM database?  FMS is running on my company's web server, which is running PHP, but I don't know of a way to integrate the two.  What I'd like to do is trigger a PHP sendmail script when a new record is committed.  The best option I can think is the Open URL script step that opens the php page with the sendmail script, but I would like something that won't require the end-user to open a browser window.
