PHP code question

Hi,
I'm trying to run a third party PHP script. It's called zensync and it's designed to allow fast upload of photos to the ZenFolio site (photo sharing/selling site).

The instructions say to modify the local config.php, which I did. It's local to the script directory zensync is in.
The it says to run it:   php zensync.php
When I type that nothing happens. I just get the command prompt back.
So I went into the zensync.php code and typed in an echo statement. If I put the echo before the first require, I get "Hello" back. Otherwise, I get nothing back. All the files listed as 'required' are in the local directory where the zensync scripts exists. So I don't understand why the script is coming back with nothing.
Ideas?
Better trouble shooting skills for php? I'm a programmer but not really PHP.

Thanks,
zensync.php:

echo "Hello";  ## Comes back with Hello
require("config.php");
echo "Hello";  ## Comes back with nothing
require("config.class.php");
require("logger.class.php");
require("helper.inc.php");
require("zenlogin.inc.php");
require("dirobj.class.php");

So config.php is in the same folder as zensync.php ?

Add to the top of the page after the opening php tag

error_reporting(E_ALL);

Yeah, it's in the same dir (folder). I'll add that in and see what happens.

Still nothing.
Here is the top of the main php script:

#!/usr/bin/php

PHP is notoriously bad about hiding the messages you need to see.  You may also need to add this line.

ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);

Hmm... I just read the comments thread on this page:
http://www.plymptonia.com/?p=20

Might be worth checking out that thread.  Also checking to see if there is anything newer than the 2009 libraries.  PHP has changed a lot in the last 5 years.

Thanks for the tip.
Getting lots of error messages now!! I'll see what I can do with them.
First one is that it needs a SOAP library. Guess I'll have to get that.

Don't think there are new libs for this script but I will check.

Good docs (as good as anything about SOAP can be) here: http://php.net/manual/en/book.soap.php
