How to accesss installed program from PHP script

    I installed s3cmd and can run it from command line but from PHP script using shell_exec() it does not run and no error is returned. I suspect that the reason is that the PHP user is 'apache' and not the root user.

    My qustion is : how can I install s3cmd (I used Yum Install) on Centos5 so that the PHP script will be able to run it?

    Thanks,
    Niro

    Have you tried giving shell_exec() the full path to the binary?

    you can also use passthru, exec and system to run commands, these are better options as they provide u with feedback on the success or failure of the command.

    Do you use PHP Safe Mode? Is SELinux disabled?

    I see in my phpinfo SELINUX_INIT =YES

    PHP safe mode is off.

    Please help.

    I used passthru and system and the feedback It gives is '1' (using the extra parameter that returns the output).

    Please help

    What happens when you turn off SELinux?
