You could even set up a CGI script to do it!

I do this sort of thing all of the time on FTP-only ISPs. I have a RIDICULOUSLY simple barebones template of a CGI script which I modify to run arbitrary commands and display their output.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI qw(:all); use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser ); my $v = `arbitrary command 2>&1`; print join( "\n", header, start_html("Arbitrary Command"), strong(h1("Arbitrary Command:")), pre( $v ), end_html ),"\n";

Just customize 'arbitrary command' and save the result as, say, 'arbitrary command.cgi' using FTP and Bob's your uncle.
