exec() / system() problem
Posted 27 July 2006 - 11:22 AM
I want to execute a php script in background.
I tested with exec("php script.php > /dev/null 2>&1 &")
On my server works fine (i use cPanel) but on other
server that have directadmin this not works.
When i try echo exec("php -v") i get only a 127 return
and no php version text.
I compared the results from phpinfo() and I did not find
something to change to make it works.
When i try: system("whereis php",$out);echo $out;
on the good server i get:
php: /usr/bin/php /etc/php.d /etc/php.ini /usr/lib/php /usr/lib/php.ini /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/lib/php /usr/local/lib/php.ini /usr/include/php /usr/man/man1/php.1 0
and the server where is not working:
php: /usr/local/man/man1/php.1 0
In my phpinfo() on the server that works I don't see CLI extension
enabled. (if this is the problem)
Which settings do I have to change to make this works ?
PS: safe_mode is off on both servers

Linux 2.6.9-022stab078.9-enterprise #1 SMP Thu Jun 8 12:38:51 MSD 2006 i686
and the second one which i have issues is
FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE-p3 #0: Wed i386
I executed exec('php -v; echo $?'); and i get 127 0 as response;
exec('ls'); works fine, it returns the files there.

<?php exec('php -v', $output, $return_val); echo $return_val; ?>
Also, do you know the full path to the php executable?

<?php $path = '/full/path/to/php/executable'; echo '<pre>'; echo 'Group: ', print_r(posix_getgrgid(filegroup($path)), true); echo '<br />'; echo 'Owner: ', print_r(posix_getpwuid(fileowner($path)), true); echo '<br />'; echo 'Permissions: ', substr(sprintf('%o', fileperms($path)), -4); echo '</pre>'; ?>

in the second server (bsd one) i can't run it with simply php (without path) like in the other server.
Is there a way (shell command or php settings from php.ini) to run php without path?
(like exec('php script.php')
PS: thanks effigy for your help
