You can use any of the examples below
Code:
exec('scriptname.php'); # execute the script then exit
system('scriptname.php'); # Fork and wait while the child executes the script
my $output=`scriptname.php` # Fork and wait while the child executes the script then set the contents of $output to the output of the script

Hi.

Either try changing the call to the script to tell it to use PHP (i.e. 'php /d01/user/sample.php'), or add a "shebang" to the PHP script:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/php
