I'm trying to execute with PHP a command (rsync) to copy folders and files from a remote server to a local folder.
This is the code I wrote in php. Command WORKS in SSH (local Terminal and remote with
exec("echo superuserpassword | sudo -S sshpass -p 'sshremoteserverpassword' rsync -rvogp --chmod=ugo=rwX --chown=ftpuser:ftpuser -e ssh firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/files/folder /opt/lampp/htdocs/dowloadedfiles/", $output, $exit_code);
rsync -crahvP --chmod=ugo=rwX --chown=ftpuser:ftpuser remote.com:/path/to/remote/files /path/to/local/files/
ssh: relocation error: ssh: symbol EVP_des_cbc, version OPENSSL_1.0.0 not defined in file libcrypto.so.1.0.0 with link time reference
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver]
rsync error: remote command not found (code 127) at io.c(226) [Receiver=3.1.1]
Well, after lot of try/error, I finished to cut the problem in the root:
I readed this guide (like the last one, but better explained) and I changed the php file that execute the rsync command to the remote server (where files are located) and run the rsync.php file there, and it worked perfectly.
To execute in the machine with the files (the files to copy and the rsync.php)
1.- ssh-keygen generates keys
Enter an empty passphrase and repeat empty passphrase again.
2.- ssh-copy-id copies public key to remote host
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub remoteserveraddressip(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
The rsync.php file:
exec("rsync -crahvP /path/in/local/files/foldertocopy remoteuser@remoteserveraddress:/path/in/remote/destinationfolder/", $output, $exit_code);
After all of that, navigate to the rsync.php file and all must work. At least worked for me...
