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;
exec($mkdircmd);
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";
or
$mkdircmd = "/bin/mkdir /homes/${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.

Thanks Chris.

I appreciate the response.  I was hoping my description wasn't too
vague because I don't really understand what I'm doing.

This might sound stupid because I've not played with Drupal, but what's
wrong with using the mkdir command in PHP instead of the exec call?

Hi Ash,

I didn't know there was one.

Lemme study it up, thanks for the suggestion.
