interactive sessions in the sense those commands which ask for further input such as "time" command in MS-DOS and "rm -i" in unix. Further I want to restrict commands which alter/write to the files on the disk such as rename, move, format, etc.

such interactive commands bail out with an error 'cause they do not have a valid tty, usually
If you want to restrict anything you have to improve your web service.
Hope you're aware that you have to sanatice *any* input there before processing (for example in a shell).
