Hi there Hmmm, I'm just hitting a wall right now. I created a little php script and need to do a whois lookup. I thought of using exec() but nothing was returned. Then I tried system() with same result. The weird thing is, I don't get any errors or log entries. Using current ISPC and site is set - due to nostalgia - to suPHP. Any ideas? Addon: Interestingly, having a script on the server with just Code: <?php $w = exec("whois 188.8.131.52"); echo $w; ?> runs fine when I log into the server and su myself to the according webXX user and run the script from the cli.
