I'm trying to upgrade some software on one of my sites and part of it has to be done through a command line - which I have very little experience with. The upgrade instructions say "From the command line, browse to the maintenance directory and run the update.php script".
I remembered how to use 'cd' and was able to find my way to the right place but I don't know how to run a script through a command line. I tried guessing with 'run update.php' - but I got an error, I think it was 'command not found'.
I did a search for putty commands but didn't see anything - I could have been looking in the wrong place.
What is the command and syntax to run a php script though a command line with putty?
Sounds like your host has got two installations there and they are getting crossed-up because of misconfiguration or otherwise. The default executable for either version is php.exe. Time to consult the host to see what s/he has done.
