This has serious security implications.  Research how to create a script on
your system.  Set it's sticky bit to run as a standard user that has
authorization to run the shutdown command using SUDO.  Make sure the script
works from within UNIX and then call the script from PHP using exec.

I am not a security expert.  Check with others to get their opinion on
whether this is the best approach.
