    Script to run a unix command via browser?

    I need to run a few unix commands via my browser.. does anyone have a script that allows this?

    Specifically, I need to kill a runaway process when they occur and I don't always have access to SSH. I'd love a script that could give me a simple text box where I can type something like "kill [pid]", press submit and the results are displayed in another box/frame/iframe.

    I don't need to worry about user permissions, because the runaway processes are always be the same user as the one I would run the "command" script from.

    Thanks!

    Hrm, this is a pretty big security risk any way you look at it.

    Offhand, I think CPanel and Linuxconf (running over the web) have these options. I think CPanel uses an SSH client that runs as a Java applet. Maybe this functionality can be found outside of CPanel.

    You might want to install webmin on the box. You can kill processes via webmin and you can setup webmin to connect via a https interface.
