Ok so I tried to mimick the code C# in PHP, came up with the following code:

<?php

$word = new COM("Word.Application") or die("Unable to create Word");

$word->Visible = TRUE;

$empty = new VARIANT();

$word->Application->ChangeFileOpenDirectory("C:\\");
$word->Documents->Open("test.doc");

$word->Selection->Find->ClearFormatting();
$word->Selection->Find->Text = "Php";

$word->Selection->Find->Replacement->ClearFormatting();
$word->Selection->Find->Replacement->Text = "Hi";

$word->Selection->Find->Execute(&$empty,
&$empty,&$empty,&$empty,
&$empty,&$empty,&$empty,
&$empty,&$empty,&$empty,
$word->WdReplace->wdReplaceAll,&$empty,&$empty,
&$empty,&$empty);



$word->Quit($empty,$empty,$empty);

?>

And it does not seem to work. It just times out, can somebody see what I might be missing?

I've seen this before.  Try the code from this previous answer and see if it works for you.
