README

This module is a PHP wrapper for the libssh2 extension with support for interactive sessions. With interactive session support you can mimic a user terminal allowing you access to things such as sudo which might not typically be available to remote sessions. Unlike most libssh2 libraries, you do not need a public key file to authenticate using keys pairs.

Installation

This project requires PHP-SSH2, which can be installed with pecl:

yum install libssh2-devel
# apt-get install libssh2-1-dev
yes '' | pecl install -f ssh2
echo "extension=ssh2.so" > /etc/php.d/ssh2.ini
# echo "extension=ssh2.so" > /etc/php5/mods-available/ssh2.ini
# ln -s /etc/php5/mods-available/ssh2.ini /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/20-ssh2.ini
# ln -s /etc/php5/mods-available/ssh2.ini /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/20-ssh2.ini
