ssh has nothing to do with PHP, you ought to try one of the linux
newsgroups....

Secondly, you don't mention what the problem is that you are experiencing...
ssh-keygen is different from ssh - you use 'ssh' to connect to a box while
you use ssh-keygen to generate a key for ssh. This was done automatically
for me during my SuSE linux installation.

Hope that helps you some,

I know that ssh has nothing to do with php, the problem is that how can I
"insert" an ssh into a php code.
I explain:
I've tried to write a "script" in php, where I execute ssh to another host
(and I've used ssh-keygen to generate the password for the user who
execute ssh, so it doesn't ask me it). And it works, I can connect simply
doing ssh name@host
Now, the right problem is that I need to use the same code from a web
page, I've tried to copy the code into an <html> </html> but it doesn't
work, and looking for a solution I've noticed that when I call a shell
command from a web page, the user is the server apache and no more
"lorenza"...
I think that that's the problem... but I don't know what to do...

You're trying to execute a php script from the command line? If so, something
like:

php -q /path/to/scriptname

should work. Or you may need to add the path info before "php". Try:

whereis php

to find it.

Hi,
no, I'm trying to execute it from a web page.
As a php script I was able to do it, and the connection works well, the
problem is that I need to connect with ssh from a web page.
I've tried to copy the php code used in the script into the <html> </html>
but it doesn't work.
I think, that I've found my problem, but I don't know how to solve it.
I mean, I've seen that when I use the php script, the user who executes is
"apache", and the problem is that I've generated a key with ssh-keygen for
another user, not apache, and I don't know how to do.

any idea?
thanx
