PHP files are usually not executable (unless you put a shebang on their first line and then give them executable permission); so try "php /usr/etc/script.php". Also, keep in mind that it outputs a complete HTML file including the headers.

the PHP script is marked executable
the first line is a #! line with the path to your PHP binary.

otherwise, you'd be better off specifying the path to the PHP binary and the name of the script on the command line itself.


$PHP /usr/etc/script.php
Check the man page for any switches you might need to add (depending on the script).

You might also need to install php-cgi in order to run PHP scripts from the command line
