Using GNUPG with php scripts and webserver

Check error_log for the problem (if you can) - permissions on ~/.gnupg files 
will cause things to not work and you must have environment exported for the 
nobody user. I reset $ENV{'HOME'} in perl... there must be something 
similar in php. If you can view the environment the server provides in the 
browser you can see if you have what gpg requires. I assume the binary is in 
$PATH for the webserver. 
Keys must be readable and implicitly trusted for the webserver user and 
this user must have somewhere to write if you are using temporary files.
