How to: Development & Administration: SSH & SFTP¶
We provide SSH access for managing your server. As a rule, you will have access at two levels:
- Developer access - restricted access, can be shared with other users;
- Root Superuser Accesses - full access.
Connection via SSH allows you to do the following:
- Check server resources;
- Create new users and groups;
- View and change server configuration;
- Get full access to files and change permissions;
- Create new projects and connect domains;
- Install additional software and update it.
To connect to the server via SSH, use a terminal (console, PuTTY).
Connecting via SSH¶
Install and run the terminal.
Open the email with access details. Find the “SSH/SFTP Access to Server” section.
We recommend using Developer Access, but if you feel confident, use Root access. Input Host and Port 22 in the PuTTY configuration.
When the terminal opens, enter the login and password.
Important: During entering the password, the password characters are hidden. Be careful not to make a typo—simply copy the password from the email. You can then paste this by right-clicking in the PuTTY window and it will paste your selection. Click Enter.
That’s it. You are ready to manage your server.
