php iseries

I have created a php page below:

<?php

$database = 'S102MCBM';                                
$user = 'user';                                    
$password = 'pwd';                                  
               
$conn = db2_connect($database, $user, $password);      
                   
$stmt = db2_prepare($conn, 'CALL CHKAEON(?)');                      
                                                       
db2_bind_param($stmt, 1, 'usrprf', DB2_PARAM_INOUT);
 
db2_execute($stmt);        
                           
d2_close($conn);          

?>

The code works fine when I use a SQL statement and can fill in a table fine - but when I call this stored procedure above, it doesn't seem to work. So I know the connection works. I know that the program is created as a stored procedure because I call it out of an ASP.Net page ok. I am new to php and iSeries, so maybe I have set up something wrong or am overlooking something.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Most PHP functions return values of some sort.  For example, see the online man page here and look for "Return values."
http://php.net/manual/en/function.db2-prepare.php

A good first step in the debugging process is to test these return values to see if they are what you expected, and perhaps visualize them with var_dump().
