PHP working from shell, not from web page

Apologies if there is an answer already in the other post about PHP not working - I looked and tried what I could to no avail.

I’ve got Rocket PHP working from the shell, installed in /Rocket/php/ :

MCZ:~/bin :  ll /Rocket/php/bin

MCZ:~/bin :  cat HelloWorld.php
  echo "Hello World!";
  echo "PHP is so easy!";
MCZ:~/bin :  ./HelloWorld.php
Hello World!
PHP is so easy!

But when I try to run a PHP script fromthe apache server, I get (from the apache log)

EDC5130I Exec format error. (errno2=0xEF076015): [client] couldn't create child process: 130: hello.php                                      
EDC5130I Exec format error. (errno2=0xEF076015): [client] AH01223: couldn't spawn child process: /u/jocs065/ihsconfig/ihs/jocs065/cgi-bin/hel

This is my script:

print <<<eot
  <title>PHP Test Page</title>
<h1>Hello World</h1>' 

I’ve done this:

Add the following lines to httpd.conf:

> ScriptAlias /php/ " /path/to/php/ "
> AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
> Action application/x-httpd-php “/php/bin/php-cgi”

Open php.ini and change cgi.fix_pathinfo to zero:

> cgi.fix_pathinfo=0

(from Customization server apache and php (Z/os V2r2))

(my scriptalias is actually : ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/u/jocs065/ihsconfig/ihs/jocs065/cgi-bin/")

and I’m pretty sure that the web server is finding my script, it’s just refusing to run it.

I had php working at another site about 3 years ago, and I can’t think of anything else I had to do.

Just to add that previously I had it working using the info in the IBM HTTP server migration redbook but I didn’t need any of the ilphpNoSecure/ilphpSecure wrapper stuff.

And if anyone wants to say “Give up and use Python” then I’m all ears as we have that installed too if it’s easier :slight_smile:

Deleted as problem caused by a bad install.
