    Description

      As described in MDLQA-16593, the expected behaviour when "Path to PHP CLI" is not defined but a task is run using "Run now" UI link, is to display the message: "Cannot find the path to the PHP CLI executable so task execution aborted. Set the 'Path to PHP CLI' setting in Site administration / Server / System paths.".

      However, right now, the following error is displayed: "Sorry, but you do not currently have permissions to do that (Run now).".

      Besides, the redirect page is not correct (it should be redirected to System paths page).
