Thanks! You are right! pdflatex is there.

Now, what I get on the broswer window, url =
my_personal_site/../blabla.php, using  the following two files (.tex resp.
.php), is the following:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-14h-released-20010417 (Web2C
! I can't write on file `mario_5.log'.
Please type another transcript file name: 
! Emergency stop
No pages of output.

A problem of permission?
Another .php file with a fopen command runs for ever. Same issue?

Any help is welcome.

Thanks mario
my.tex file is:
\begin{letter}{to me}

\opening{Dear Sir,}


\closing{Sincerely yours,} \end{letter}

my.php script is:

$test = `pdflatex my.tex`;
echo "<pre>$test</pre>"; 

echo "<br><a href=my.pdf>my.pdf</a>";
