I want to use SSH. If I access SSH in the Programming Centre in the Site Admin page I get a message saying that SSH for “your account should be activated by default”.
For further information the message directs me to the knowledge base. If I access the knowledge base I get a message saying that to use SSH I should activate SSH using the Control Panel.
So I’m a bit puzzled, is SSH activated by default or do I have to activate it using the control panel ?
Supposing I need to activate it using the Control Panel, how exactly do I do this ? I did a search for Control Panel and got no feed back.
And finally what host and login name should use for SSH ? Maybe the login name for the client area ? However using this the system tries to combine the user name to the server and I get :
which is a bit strange and which obviously doesn’t work.
Please answer since I need test my perl scripts on your server,.
Thanks in advance.
I’m just a regular user, but I can tell you what works for me:
slogin jimdscott.com -l jimdscot
Then I enter my password as prompted. Where jimdscott.com is the site Site5 hosts for me and jimscot is the username assigned to my primary account.
If you are using Linux\GNU the ssh or slogin will work, but if you are using window program called putty it is a good program to use.
Thanks Jim for the suggestion but its not working for me.
I don’t what the problem is.
Could you please open a ticket with our support department so that they can take a more detailed look into the problem you are having? You can open a ticket through backstage or by emailing email@example.com.
I placed ticket, received a reply and fixed the problem. For the record :
i) ssh access is now activated automatically for all accounts (a recent change).
ii) to access you need the main account login name and password. I was using some kind of child account created for me by our consultant.
Anyhow problem fixed. Thanks for all the interest.
I am happy our support team was able to solve your problem. If you ever have any other issues, please feel free to contact us again.
