How can I set up and manage SSH access for users in CWP7?
If you are using CWP7 as your hosting control panel, it provides an easy and efficient way to set up and manage SSH access for users. SSH (Secure Shell) is a cryptographic network protocol that allows secure remote login and file transfer between machines. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to set up SSH access for users in CWP7.
Step 1: Logging into CWP7
First, you need to log in to your CWP7 control panel. Open your preferred web browser and enter the URL www.freespirits.gr or www.fspirits.com into the address bar. Locate the login section and enter your username and password to access the control panel.
Step 2: Accessing User Management
After logging in, navigate to the user management section in CWP7. This section allows you to create and manage user accounts on your server.
Step 3: Creating a New User Account
To set up SSH access for a user, you need to create a new user account. Click on the “Create User” button or similar option in the user management section. Fill in the required details, including the username and password for the new user. Additionally, ensure that the “SSH Access” checkbox is selected to enable SSH access for this user.
Step 4: Generating SSH Keys
SSH typically works with key-based authentication. To enhance security and convenience, it is recommended to generate SSH keys for users. After creating a user account, find the “SSH Keys” section in the user management panel. Click on the “Generate Key” button to create a new SSH key pair.
Step 5: Managing SSH Keys
Once the SSH key pair is generated, it can be managed in the “SSH Keys” section. From here, you can view, edit, or delete the SSH keys associated with a user. To add a new key, click on the “Add Key” button. Paste the public key into the provided field and save the changes.
Step 6: Testing SSH Access
To ensure the SSH access is working correctly, you can test it by attempting to connect to your server using an SSH client. Open your preferred SSH client program (such as PuTTY) and enter the server IP address, username, and private key file path. If the connection is successful, you have set up SSH access for the user in CWP7.
Remember to grant SSH access only to trusted users and regularly monitor and manage user accounts to maintain security.
