Did the new cpanel upgrade affect the Pipe in any way.

    I have been running a simple pipe in a subdirectory for the past several years and all of a sudden it stopped the other day when I accepted the cpanel upgrade at my VPS.

    Below is what my basic code looks like and I set up a forwarder on cpanel like so:
    ************************************************************ -> |/home/user/public_html/mail/mail.php

    #!/usr/bin/php -q
    /* Read the message from STDIN */
    $fd = fopen("php://stdin", "r"); 
    $email = ""; // This will be the variable holding the data.
    while (!feof($fd)) {
    $email .= fread($fd, 1024);
    /* Saves the data into a file */
    // $fdw = fopen("/home/user/public_html/mail/mail.txt", "w+");
    $fdw = fopen("mail.txt", "w+");
    fwrite($fdw, "This is a test.\n");
    fwrite($fdw, $email);
    /* Script End */
    echo "<br>That is all folks<br>";
    My host has worked diligently with me on this problem, and we thought we had it fixed... but no..
    So thought I might post here in the hopes that someone else is having similar problems.
    We did solve some bounce problems coming from the pipe, but now I find out the the $email is not populating with the data from the email. $email is always empty.
    It has worked well for years is the reason i suspect the cpanel upgrade.
    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
