2.10.3. SSH connection
Using the web client
- The web client works directly in the browser. When using it, you do not need to enter a password or run any additional software.
- When connecting through the section "SSHaccess" you will be taken to the root directory of the hosting account, when connecting through the section "My sites" — directly to the root directory of the corresponding site.
From the console
- Run the standard command:
example.ftp.toolsuse SSH login and host.
- Once the connection is established, enter SSH password). Attention! For security reasons, in Linux systems, when entering a password or pasting it from the clipboard, characters are not displayed on the screen.
PuTTY is a free SSH and telnet client. You can download the current version at official website.
- Download and run PuTTY.
- Specify connection settings:
- "Host Name (or IP address)" — SSH host.
- "Port" —
- "Connection type" — "SSH".
- Click "Open".
- If a warning is displayed, it means that the server key is not in the PuTTY cache (this is typical for the first connection) or has changed. To connect, click "Yes" or "No":
- "Yes" - connect and add the key of the current server to the PuTTY cache (on subsequent connections, the warning will no longer be displayed until the PuTTY cache is cleared or the server key is changed).
- "No" - connect without saving the key in the PuTTY cache (the next time you connect, the warning will be displayed again).
- "Cancellation" - do not connect and do not save the key in the cache.
- Once connected, enter SSH login and password. The password can be entered either manually or copied and pasted with the right mouse button. Attention! For security reasons, in Linux systems, when entering a password or pasting it from the clipboard, characters are not displayed on the screen.
