No need to apologise. I only mentioned it  -  and the tone -
because you were coming across as very abrupt, but I thought
that might be a language thing.

Fair enough, then - maybe the OP wants to stick the port directory
up on a webserver somewhere, so we can pick over the wreckage?
I assume he's got a webserver, and isn't planning to run php as a
general scripting language (in which case I'll flame him myself <g>).

I just think sometimes people who are very new and uncertain about
UNIX in general can get frightened off if they aren't given a
break. They end up on a Mandrake list somewhere, and I wouldn't
want that on my conscience :)
