SSH (SFTP) access
#1
Hi,
it looks like SSH is disable, is it?
#2
Yes, SSH is disabled on all of our nodes and will never be enabled due to the security risks involved.
#3
I see. Generally I was only need SFTP access, since it's more useful than pure FTP as for me.
#4
It looks like VestaCP is adding SFTP support in their latest update. It might be a paid plugin though so I'll see how much it costs.
#5
Is FTP currently the only way to upload?  Sending the password in the clear and all that?  I guess I can change it afterward but it would be great if something other than password authentication was supported (maybe it is).  Thanks

FTP is the only option for VestaCP at this time. You can create an FTP account with a different password than your account password.

Thanks, I went ahead and set that up.

I decided to purchase the SFTP chroot license for VestaCP and have it enabled now so you can connect using SFTP over port 272.

Oh thanks, wow!  I was thinking of writing a script that changed the ftp password through the vestacp api after an upload, and updat .netrc.  But sftp avoids the issue completely.

Ok, I can connect now, didn't realize I had to put the port number in the sftp command. sftp doesn't seem to use the .netrc credential file but I'll figure something out. Is there a way to set it up with an ssh public key instead of using a password?

Not that I know of, the SFTP chroot plugin disables SSH access so I don't think it will let you generate or import a key.
