How to enable SSH access

How to enable SSH access

Overview
This article shows how Nexcess clients can enable SSH access from their SiteWorx interface.

Attention: This procedure alone will not grant SSH access; you must also whitelist any IP addresses that will connect using SSH. See How to manage firewall whitelists in SiteWorx for more information.

  1. Log in to your SiteWorx account.
  2. From the main menu, click Hosting Features > SSH Account.


  3. In the SSH Account Information section, click Enable account.


  4. When complete, SiteWorx will show your new SSH password. You may reset this password at any time by clicking Reset password.


  5. You must now whitelist any IP addresses that will log in using SSH. Follow the instructions in How to manage firewall whitelists in SiteWorx. In Step 4 of that document, select SSH.
