Create shortcut for PHP

I have XAMPP installed and my PHP is:


Every time I need to execute a PHP file I need to do this:

/opt/lampp/bin/php-5.3.8 testando.php

Is there another way to execute it besides using symbolic link?

I did this on /etc/init.d/:

sudo ln -s /opt/lampp/bin/php-5.3.8 php

Why when I need to run PHP I have to do this ./php instead of just php?

And is there a way to do this without the ./? Like it was installed via apt-get?

php wasn't a boot script , you should never put that in /etc/init.d

Normally you should have a symbol link named php in /opt/lampp/bin/ , which is linked to /opt/lampp/bin/php-5.3.8

(If not , do ln -s /opt/lampp/bin/php-5.3.8 /opt/lampp/bin/php to make this work)

And in your ~/.bashrc , add more path to $PATH:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/lampp/bin/

And you execute your script like this , on any directory:

php XX.php
