Hello,

The ssh2 PECL module for PHP currently only supports PHP 7.x in it's "alpha" version. Since a stable version is not yet available, the module installer interface does not support it's installation. As a workaround, you can manually install the PECL module from the command line. EX:

Code:
/opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/pecl install https://pecl.php.net/get/ssh2-1.1.2.tgz
Simply replace "php70" with each version of PHP 7 you'd like to install it for. Note that internal case EA-6158 is open to address the issue where the alpha and beta versions of PECL modules such as SSH2 appear to be available for installation in WHM, yet the installation fails because WHM will always attempt to install the stable version.

Thank you.

I'm resurrecting this thread, because I'm running into the same issue. I have a new cloud server running CentOS 7 that shows libssh2 is installed:
Code:
# rpm -qa|grep ssh2
libssh2-1.4.3-10.el7_2.1.x86_64
When I try to install ssh2 PECL module, I get an error:
Code:
configure: error: The required libssh2 library was not found.  You can obtain that package from http://sourceforge.net/projects/libssh2/
ERROR: `/root/tmp/pear/ssh2/configure --with-php-config=/opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/php-config --with-ssh2' failed
Any suggestions?
