What's the default location of PHP

How do I find the default location of PHP on my Linux Server (Red Hat Fedora Core 7 - I think).
I need this for the special instructions on setting up a cron job:
In my case, /usr/local/bin is empty.

Ensure that the first line of the cron file is the location of php on the server.  
Default first line entry on this file is:
#!/usr/local/bin/php -q
The /usr/local/bin/php should be the location of php

Or change the #! line to #!/usr/bin/env php -q

.. or check your rpm -
issue 'rpm -qa | grep php ' to find your exact php package name, then
issue 'rpm -qf [package name from above]' to see all the files the rpm package contains.

Easily you will find your php binary and all the other interesting things in there.

I tried both of your suggestions and get this response, an ideas? Thanks for your help.
Extension '/var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/spot/admin/cron/cron_pop.php' not present.

cron_pop.php is the script where I inserted
1) #!/usr/bin/env php -q
2) #!/usr/bin/php -q (<---------result of 'which php')

Nevermind, in the cron job setup I entered this in the command line instead:
/usr/bin/php /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/spot/admin/cron/cron_pop.php
