Domain Website SCP/SSH Setup

by Ned Schumann last modified Mar 19, 2015 09:31 AM

Website SCP and restricted SSH access is managed by the SSH Manager tool in the Advanced Tools area of the Domain Admin Control Panel.

  1. To setup SCP, restricted SSH must first be enabled.
    1. In the SSH Manager, select Enable Service.
    2. Note the contents of the Secure Shell Connection Information box on the right:
      1. Host Name: shell1c11.megawebservers.com
    3. Enter your password and select Apply.
  2. You may now SCP to your website using WinSCP.
    1. The user is example.com; the host is shell1c11.megawebservers.com
  3. Alternately, you could use SCP at the command line.
    1.  For example, if example.com wished to copy its access_log file to a desktop, the following command line instruction would work: 
      1. scp example.com@shell1c11.megawebservers.com:/logs/access_log .   

        In the above command,  '.' represents the directory in which the command was run.

  4. You could also access your website with a restricted SSH shell.
