    I've got an issue that is stumping me a bit.

    I have one server (a Trustix box) that when a user adds a cron to run a php file, the system sends out an email that says:

    Shell access is not enabled on your account!
    If you need shell access please contact support.

    This happens no matter WHAT method of running the file is used. php -q -f, wget, get, curl, whatever, all results in the same. And its not something in the ecript either. We have set it to as minimal as a simple html file with NO php code in it at all, and we get this response.

    Checked file permissions on php, they're fine.

    I'm sitting here at something of a loss. Anyone got an idea?

    sometimes it takes telling the php script where the php files are. try something like this.

    /usr/local/bin/php /home/username/script.php > null
