Obviously php works from calls through apache, since apache has been extended with php. However, we have php scripts designed to run as cron jobs, requiring command line execution. I did a server-wide find on php, php5, etc. with no luck locating it. I presume a simple install is required, but thought I would ask the forum for guidance before continuing with any apt-get's, yum's or whatever's... Caught me by surprise that a LAMP would not have command line php support out-of-the-box, and suggest this addition for future builds -- unless I am missing something... Thanks in advance for any help.

apt-get update
apt-get install php5-cli

If you are looking for other php (or other) stuff you can search from command line like this

apt-cache search php

Trying to get ZendFramework 2 tutorial app installed, trying to run first step: php composer.phar self-update and kept getting: -bash: php: command not found. Basic stuff, but I didn't know cli support had to be installed.

Thanks!
