Hi all,

I'm unsure how to describe this but I'll try.

The following code works fine in its own PHP script;

$mkdircmd = '/bin/mkdir /homes/'.$uid;

But when placed in a larger PHP script being part of the ldap_provisioning module in Drupal, the Drupal GUI is blank until I do;

$mkdircmd = "'/bin/mkdir /homes/'.$uid";

... were I surrounded the variable with "", which causes it to not work.

$mkdircmd = "/bin/mkdir /homes/$uid";
$mkdircmd = "/bin/mkdir /homes/${uid}";

Should fix the syntax.

I guess you've already solved the permissions problem on the /homes/ folder (normally the web server would not be able to create such a path because of permission issues).

Blank GUI - no idea. Anything in the error logs (php or apache) ?

Maybe asking on a drupal specific list would be a better idea for that one.
