Unfortunately, I don't have access to the apache account, part of the reason why this has been a pain to troubleshoot.

I could see if my hosting company will give me access... they're suggesting that what I'm trying to do won't work (running Ruby directly from PHP) and to use cgi instead. Because of this, I wanted to do more research before getting back in contact with them.

So far, none of the research I've done seems to suggest there is anything wrong with calling a ruby script from the exec() function, and it works fine in my similar test environment... not sure what to think at this point.
