I’ve read as much as I could find on the internet about doing this. I’ve written a php script to connect to, and query a MySQL database for the tracks to play.  When I run the php script manually from the shell prompt it seems to work perfectly.  Yet, when I attempt to get ices to use it things seem to be working for a little while, but then I get the  following strange error on the console:
