I’m using from ssh:
and works great, but when I do this:
I get a “could not open input file” error.
You can’t pass GET variables via the command line!! If you need to pass a variable to your script you can use
php filename.php your_variable and use
$argc in your PHP code.
PHP file’s that were written as a website will only be of limited use on CLI.
You could write a wrapper script, that prepares the superglobals and
include‘s the webscript.
I recommend reading about the CLI interface to understand what it does.
filename.php?id=2 syntax is only for web servers.
What you did was tell the shell to find a file named
filename.php?id=2 and pass it to PHP, but that file doesn’t exist.
You need to pass your parameters as arguments instead and use $argv:
<?php var_dump($argv); ?>
