Unable to authenticate to SFTP using SSH Keys

Postby Support_Steve » Wed Oct 21, 2009 10:19 am

When configuring a web user's authentication settings to SFTP you can allow the user to authenticate using a public SSH key. This can replace the need for a password or enhance your security settings by forcing the user to provide both a password and a key.

In order for this to work you must place the web users public key into the *installation folder*/userdata/keys/ssh/ directory. The file name must match the user name with the .pub extension (e.g. jsmith.pub).

Really the only question, I had on the Services, and is answered here..
Could you please get this one on to the Standard User Guide.. That would make the Guide complete

I'm glad this topic was able to assist you. I will make sure the help documentation is updated with SFTP key authentication information in the next release.
