PHP is running fine with apache on my server. I want to use it from command line but I am unable to find the binary:
root@....:~# whereis php php: root@....:~# whereis php5 php5: /etc/php5 /usr/lib/php5 /usr/share/php5
There is no binary in the above folders.
Further, I did a
cd /usr find . | grep "bin.*php"
and got 0 results. How to locate the php binary?!
I reinstalled php5-cli (apparently went okay, but still unable to use it!)
