To help someone avoid the headaches I did for a week. SSH2 functions have problems with the ssh2-beta & libssh2-0.18 even after patching with said patches on the internet.

ssh_exec will work fine
ssh2_shell will not work

In order to use ssh2_shell I had to roll back to libssh2-0.14 in order to get ssh2_shell function to work properly

Using PECL it must be specified the channel, since the beta version has to be choosen instead of stable one:

$ pecl install ssh2 channel://

Installing this module for use with CentOS 5.?? or 6.?

1. Install your favorite PHP RPM packages.  Make sure that one of your favorite packages is pear, so pecl gets installed in-tow.

2. Find and install *RPMS* of libssh2 of a version >= 1.2, get both the base lib package (libssh2-1.2.*.rpm) and the devel package that includes headers (libssh2-devel-1.2.*.rpm) of the EXACT SAME VERSION.  Finding these packages took a few minutes of googling, and I invite an editor that has a trusted source for these to attach URLs as appropriate. (Yes, the version below is ancient)

# rpm -ivh libssh2-1.2.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm libssh2-devel-1.2.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

3. Install the PHP module via pecl
# pecl install ssh2-0.12

4. Make PHP see the newly-installed extension
# echo "" > /etc/php.d/ssh2.ini

5. Restart apache

Just a little note: when compiling this package after modifying the ssh2.c, do not use pecl build as it will not create an file (although it says it succeeded), use:

./configure --with-ssh2

you then need to copy the file into your extension dir if it didn't do so already.
