comment How to tell Ubuntu where to install a program and how to tell where an existing program was installed?
thanks for the detailed answer, just one question. Since you said "No. Where you are when you run the install commands almost never matters.", does this mean now that I have installed the program I can safely delete the Sphinx folder in /home/sphinx/ that I extracted from the tarball and ran the install and made commands in? Is this now the equivalent of an installer that I already ran to install a program and now has no use?

@Bobby Ahh it works now. Just had to add php before the script path. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. If you post that as an answer I will accept.

@Bobby I can run the script by navigating to /var/www and typing "php cron-test.php". How should I modify the cron command to tell it to run the script using the "php" command. Just by adding php before the path to the script?
