I am trying to run a php file on a ubuntu linux server but get a 'command not found' error when i run "php file_name.php"
Searching online, i found an article that suggested I run "sudo aptitude install php5-cli" which I did and restarted apache afterwards but I still get this error.
How do I fix this?Answer1:
Try this once,
Go to terminal.
It will show where is php installed.
Export that path to environment variable using following command
export PATH=$PATH;/path/to/php's/bin directory
Then execute required file..
first make sure that you've installed following packs:<ul><li>php5</li> <li>php5-cli</li> <li>php-pear</li> </ul>
sudo apt-get install php5 php5-cli php-pear
then make sure to configure php safely befor using it.
also make your php file executable ( chmod 700 )Answer3:
