    Default [SOLVED] Tricky situation

    I have a server connected to my zimbra server running a php web app. I have been able to automate a script t add users to zimbra but of course there's the problem of permissions because the zimbra cli requires you to be logged as as user zimbra. so there is my problem. I need to be able to update new users as they signup to our web app on a server attached to zimbra. Any suggestions?

    I've got an internal web box set up with SSH keys to get the zimbra user to run commands. I scp over scripts, and run them.

    That's exactly what I did. Check this out:

    in my sudoers file on my non zimbra server I entered:
    wwwrun myhostname = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/ssh

    then on my php script:
    echo "<div align=\"center\"><font face=\"verdana\" size=\"4\"><b>Please wait while I update mail account.....</b></font></div>" ;
    $mstring = " $ADD_username1@mydomain $ADD_password1" ;
    $mresult = `sudo ssh zimbra@mail_server zmprov ca $mstring`;



    and it's all cool.


    Of course I already generated my keys for passwordless access.
