Change your ISP. For an ISP to be forcing you under this way is
unrealistic. There are plenty of really good ISP's listed on the php
site that all have the latest versions of php and have good setup

Subject: running php as cgi script

I'm trying to run a simple test php script as a cgi script on my ISP's
and haven't been able to get it to work, although according them it is 

I have an example from a book  which gives the following steps:

1. Put the script in the cgi-bin
2. run chmod 755
3. include "#!/usr/bin/php" at the top. (I have checked that this is the

correct location of php on the server)

The test script they give looks like this:


echo "This is a small CGI program."

Doesn't look like the usual php syntax to me, but I guess this is
Anyway I've tried it a bunch of different ways and it hasn't worked and
haven't been able to find much on the subject from Google. 
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong?
