Install PHP-SSH2 extension in cPanel

PHP SSH2 extension to be loaded into the cPanel server as this module is not available inside EasyApache.

We need to install it separately and integrate to the current configuration using below steps -

1. Download and install libssh2 from this website, http://www.libssh2.org/snapshots/
$ cd /usr/local/src
$ wget http://www.libssh2.org/snapshots/libssh2...319.tar.gz
$ tar -xzf libssh2-1.4.0-20120319.tar.gz
$ cd libssh2-*
$ ./configure
$ make all install

2. Before configuring the extension we need to know where the PHP extension dir path. Refer below command to get this -
$ php -i | grep extension_dir
/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626

3. Then, download PECL ssh2 module from here, http://pecl.php.net/package/ssh2 and install the module:
$ cd /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626
$ wget http://pecl.php.net/get/ssh2/
$ tar -xzf ssh2-0.11.3.tgz
$ mv ssh2-0.11.3 php-ssh2
$ cd php-ssh2
$ phpize
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

4. Now we need to enable the module in php.ini. Retrieve the php.ini location:
$ php -i | grep "Loaded Configuration File"
Loaded Configuration File => /usr/local/lib/php.ini

And now add extension in desired PHP.INI -
$ extension=ssh2.so

This has been done! You can check using below command -
php -m | grep ssh2
