Setting the PHP-CLI path in Omeka

Some plugins including CSV Import and Neatline may need to execute code using the command-line version of PHP. If your plugin requires this it can be enabled by editing the file at application/config/config.ini and modifying the background.php.path = “” line to the following:

background.php.path = "/usr/local/bin/php"
