command not working

I have a client that has 2 cpanel servers with me running joomla installations.  He needs to execute this command within joomla I believe.  One of the servers the command works just fine, the other though, it doesn't even though they're very similar builds.

$command="nohup mysql -u ".$user." -p".$password." ".$dbname." < ".$sqlfile;
passthru($command);

It's not seeming to work and he did get it sort of work, but he's sitll saying there are problems.  He used this command to get past it:

$command="/usr/bin/mysql -u ".$user." -p".$password." ".$dbname." < ".$sqlfile;
$sqlit=passthru($command);

What Changed was:"nohup mysql -u " to  "/usr/bin/mysql -u "

Does anyone know what's going on and why nohup would work on the one server and not on the other.

Do not use -p for the password as this prompts an interactive input. Use --password instead like so

$command="/usr/bin/mysql -u ".$user." --password=".$password." ".$dbname." < ".$sqlfile;
$sqlit=passthru($command);

-p prompts for a password, -pPasswordhere doesn't.
