I guess the PATH variable isn't the same for your shell and for apache, or some other env. variable is missing. Try to run the ooffice command with full path:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $command='/full/path/to/ooffice -invisible "macro:///Standard.Module4.Main()"';
If this doesn't work either, run a "set" command :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $command='set >/tmp/apache.env.txt';
and compare the output this is giving when run from shell and from apache, respectively.
