Access Cisco Devices via SSH using PHP code

Hi,

I want to access the Cisco devices like Wireless Controllers etc via SSH using PHP code and execute a few commands and then display the output on to the webpage. If any one can provide a way or a working example which shows a way to access either Cisco Wireless Controller or Router or Switch will do the job.

here is one via telnet using php codes for easier troubleshooting of port and for ssh, you should check out "ssh2_connect" and you will need the "libssh2" libraries. Other alternative, besides phpseclib (which is not bad) is using Net_SSH2 or PECL SSH2. Here is one example shared in Cisco forum on php code sample (though not mentioned to be tested) doing WLC backup
