You can't ;-)

This console only provides initial setup and password recovery tools.

Try the hidden exec.php instead. You have to provide full path to 
executables... This should let you see if all works as expected.

When all is OK, you can put the shell command in the config.xml file so 
that you do not lose your extra config after a reboot. Rather useful.

See the DocBook for more info on adding commands to the config.xml file. 
  See http://www.m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/faq-hiddenopts.html in particular 
+ mailing list archive (search for 'shellcmd').
