If you want to run php scripts in ubuntu, do this:

Code:
sudo apt-get install php5-cli

yeah, php is "just" a piece of software like everything else..you don't need the whole web server (like Apache, along with some plugins) to run php scripts unless you want to serve them for the rest of the world

The same goes for (at least most of) the other similar things.

Well, you'll have to download it somehow...

Just do 'sudo apt-get install php5-cli' and write down packages it asks. Then go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/, download required packages, and then go home.

Once home, install them like this:

dpkg -i package_name.deb

php myscript.php

PHP has usually CLI enabled by default, unless specifically disabled by the system administrator or the distribution.

Code:
run php -v
If the output contains something like 'cli' then it is CLI-enabled.

You can fetch parameters from the commandline by using $argc and $argv[], similar to C programming. Launch your script like this:

Code:
php myscript.php
Bye,
