    Hi again!

    Given that /var/www/html is your web root, you can either run the script by making a usual HTTP request:


    Or, you can (is you indicate above) run it via the command-line. However, to do this you must have PHP as a binary (a program that can interpret PHP code). If you don't know if you have this, try the following:

    root@localhost# cd /var/www/html/sock
    root@localhost# php sock.php

    If this get the script executed, you're safe. If it returns a "php: command not found", you need to install/compile a PHP binary.

    When you do have a PHP binary, you can also add a so-called "shebang" at the top of your script:


    and then do a 'chmod 755 sock.php' to make it executable. By this, you will be able to run the script by just typing its name on the command-line:

    root@localhost# cd /var/www/html/sock
    root@localhost# ./sock.php

    Hope this helps!

        Hi again,

        Did you compile and install PHP from source? If so, recompile it but this time run the configure-script without the --with-apxs switch:

        cd <php-src-dir>
        ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

        This should generate a php binary (a file called 'php') in your <php-src-dir>. Simply copy this file to /usr/local/bin:

        cp php /usr/local/bin

        If you installed PHP from a binary package, try to find a CGI-version of the package, and install that one. What Linux distribution do you use?
