So I was reading the Site5 Knowledge Base article about SSH, and I created the keys (no problem there). Then it says ‘First, login to your account via SSH as you normally would (replace the user and hostname with your actual account info)’.
This is where I’m hung up, the example shows:
‘ssh [email protected]’
So lets say for example my domain is ‘mysite.com’ and my username is ‘john’. Then would I type:
‘ssh [email protected]’?
Because I tried this and I get the error:
‘ssh: Could not resolve hostname mysite.accountservergroup.com: Name or service not known’
Could someone show me an example of how it should be done, or if I need to enable ssh some other way?
Assuming Site5 has already enabled ssh for you, you can access it in two ways.
If you login to your backstage, it will list what server you are on under “server status”. You would then use ssh like:
“ssh [email protected]”
or if you have a domain setup with site5 then you can simply ssh as normal:
Hope this helps,
either do ssh [email protected] or ssh [email protected], where servername is the name of the server your site is hosted on.
