Thanks a lot for your advise. In fact, I thought about that as well, but I do not know how to switch the user from apache to a real user when I send a request through Web browser. I even tried to use "ssh_rsa" method instead of password authentication. But I got the same error. Command line fine, but through web server I got an error in the first place (ssh2_connect). I am wondering do you have any suggestion. Thanks a lot.
