I'm trying to run a PHP script from the webserver that executes other scripts and programs. When I run it manually, everything works fine, but when I run it from the webserver, it doesn't seem to execute it, though I get no error messages. Could be a permissions issue? If so, how can I fix it? If not, well, how do I fix it?

Which web server software? – Harry Johnston Oct 8 '11 at 0:34

If the errorlog shows nothing of value i usually resort to procmon wich should give you a good hint to find the problem. just start procmon, execute the script through apache2, stop procmon and search for the scriptname or filter accordingly.
