command not found- qrencode

I'm trying to get another bash script to run from a exec() command but I keep getting errors.

Bash script is in a directory in html on apache server.

Was owned by root:root. Ran from terminal and it ran perfect.

No problem then running the script from web page just it wouldn't output .

Return user in the script, print on the web page. Apache:Apache.

Ok so then reset the autofs directories with apache as the uid,gid so apache has r/w on those directories, nothing different.

Running it in terminal as "apache" and I'm getting
/.qrimager: line 25 qrencode: command not found

sudo -u apache echo 2222 | qrencode -s 5 -o /directory/testqr.png
works just fine.

Any ideas?

"/.qrimager" mean that you are trying to execute the hidden file '.qrimager' in the root directory '/'. I think what you mean to execute is './qrimager' which means execute qrimager in the current working directory.

Doh! Thank you.

Ooh wait no I just wrote that wrong.

It is :

Thanks for the pointer though.


It was a $PATH issue for the apache user. No $PATH set for qrencode.

Issued a
which qrencode
Use that in bash script vs just calling qrencode and everything works.

That must mean when I was changing user in the terminal, it was using the original users PATH settings. As that user had qrencode set and the changed to user did not.
