Finding PHP Executable without contacting Host Provider

Came across a interesting issue with running a script via a CRON job.   I needed to find out what the path is to the PHP executable.   I could make a educated guess and attempt to try /usr/bin/php, but I find a few ways this could be done.

  1. Use the System function and execute the ls command to find the binary
  2. Use SSH access and action the command whereis php
