Shell password change with PHP ?

Hello

Is it possible to change shell user password via www form ? I mean using
fsockopen, scrtipt would connect to server via SSH, provide current username
and password and then execute shell command "passwd" and eventually change
password and close connection.
Can it be done? Or maybe its possible in other way if this script is
executed on the same server where this intended user accaunt is located.
Or should I learn Perl ? :)

Should take a look at http://www.php.net/proc_open

Look into suid, or sudo, and yes, a perl script would be useful.

Do you know about nss-mysql ? Perhaps you might want to look into that too.

Kind Regards,
