trying to run a simply php application on Orion .
calling a .php page it gives me an
"500 Internal Server Error
Could not find/launch the interpreter, searched for "php"
Hanging around with google i found this possible explanation :
"PHP must be in path for Orion to find it"
WHICH PATH ? Windows system variables path ? I already linked there my php.exe , but nothing !! i simply cannot find a clear doc on what to do to make php running on Orion.
Orion 2.0.2
Windows NT 4
PHP 4.3.4

I was always under the impression that Orion is primarily used for J2EE technologies, not PHP implementation.
I haven't delved deeply into Orion just yet, however I would suspect
that they might be refering to a config file in Orion. I would check the config file and search through for any mention of PHP and see if anything is commented out or deals with the placement of PHP files.
I've searched the Orion site and there doesnt seem to be much info. The only thing I've come across mentioning PHP is integrating Orion with Apache.

Try restarting the windows machine. This is one solution for many of the problems.

Otherwise, try creating a batch file to start orion.
In the below example I have added the perl executables to the path.
You can try similarly for php executables also.

Something like this...
set path=%path%;C:\tools\perl\bin;
java -jar orion.jar

Hope this helps.

Does your php script run from the command line?

I agree. Here's the link:
