How to install PHP CLI

You can run PHP5 scripts from command line. To run PHP5 scripts from command line you should install php5-cli package. To install php5-cli you can enter the following command in the terminal prompt:

apt-get install php5-cli

I use the "php /var/www/yourcronjob.php" format in the cron job setup.
