PATH environment variable


#1

We need newer versions of some executables, so I compiled them and dropped them in /home/qubitadmin/bin

I added to /home/qubitadmin/.bashrc,

PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"

This works great for login with SSH,

qubitadmin@qubitron:~$ identify -version

qubitadmin@qubitron:~$

  • but when Apache runs scripts, they still run the old executables, because I haven’t updated the PATH environment variable for when Apache runs scripts, e.g. http://ica-atom.org/cgi-bin/test.cgi

Without editing the scripts, how can I run the new executables when accessed through Apache?

You may need to set the full path to the app within your script.
