Enable SSH for my Linux Hosting account

< All Topics

SSH is a secure method of connecting to your Linux Hosting account to move files and execute commands. Follow these steps to enable SSH for your account – you don’t need to configure any public or private keys.

  1. Go to your Adaptive Web Hosting product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  3. In the account Dashboard, under Settings click Server.
  4. Next to SSH access, click Manage.
  5. Click the SSH access switch to turn it on. The switch turns green and your SSH credentials appear in the list. Use these credentials to log in to cPanel via SSH.
     Note: Your cPanel password doubles as your SSH password. If you’re not sure what your cPanel password is, you can change it right here. Be sure to write it down since it can’t be viewed in your account dashboard.
