Hi, I need to update my Macports Apache PATH environment variable.

I've tried a ton of different ways for my system (OS X 10.6) .profile, /etc/profile, /etc/paths, /etc/paths.d/ etc etc 
But nothing seems to path the new paths to Apache.

I'm testing with a PHP script like this:
$hey = shell_exec('echo $PATH'." 2>&1"); var_dump($hey); echo getenv('PATH');

And it's returning:  string '/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
' (length=30)
Can someone help me add to my system (or apache) the PATH to Macports mysql, so I can use "shell_exec" in PHP?

Thank you!
