Default PGP (GPG) / PHP Help! URGENT!!!!!!!!


I am in need of someone who know GPG and PHP fairly strongly. I have a PHP script on a unix box that needs to send out a PGP encrypted e-mail from post variables. However while GPG works fine in the command line, as soon as you dump it in the PHP script, it chokes. No error message or anything, it just doesn't work.

I need someone to help me out ASAP! And by ASAP I mean last week, so this is going fast. Please e-mail me for more details: chris@webagencies.com

If you can help me out, then you can name you asking price for the job. Within reason that is.

Once again, this is URGENT!!!!!!!!!!!

What machine is doing the actual send? If you mean, that you can send PGP encrypted emails via the commandline, I might suggest that this is because it's you that's sending the mail. when it's PHP that's generating the mail, it's actually "nobody" that's trying to do the actual send. You may want to look into the chain of permissions necessary to achieve that. PHP simply hands a mail() job to the Mail Transfer Agent, and won't worry about whether the job went ahead correctly. it could be that some process involved in sending the mail (or the relay server, if there is one) has been set up to prevent that kind of activity for security reasons (i.e to stop the machine ebing used for spam) and is quietly stomping on wheatever processes your script is trying to launch. (No error messages: since error messages, in themselves, can help script kiddies hijack machines).
