*What* isn't seen?  The expected result, or the script doesn't receive
the path given to it?  I'm guessing the script does see the provided
data, but doesn't do what you want.  Does the script have the docroot
path set in it the same as Apache?

Try simplifying your script to the basics to check input and output.
Look at your server logs (error and access).
Show the list your script...

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
