OOPS: chmod of a PHP file to 755 is unnecessary and could be problematic.
Unlike sh files, PHP files are not executable code per se.
Therefore (I think) chmod to 644 is a better choice (and works).

Not exactly. Some PHP code is working.

Other PHP stuff is not working, specifically moving data around in 
$_POST and $_SESSION is not working.

I copied a working app from WinXP's C:\xampp\htdocs folder to the Linux 
box under /var/www

Some of the PHP code in the app works when accessed through 

But it appears that I cannot move data between pages using moving data 
around using $_POST and $_SESSION.

This could explain why I have basic access to MySQL but my larger webapp 
using MySQL does not work.

Assistance with PHP $_POST and $_SESSION is requested.
