- Q: I've just clicked "Activate Block Mode". What is that and how do I reactivate my console?

emergency.lockfile from your website root folder and the console will restart immediatly. Make sure to change your SRC password by restarting the installation process.
- Q: I'm using SSH keys in my VPS as default SSH authentication. What should I do to enable the SSH access to my machine from the SRC?
- A: Basically, since implementing SSH keys in the SRC would be a long work and not completely safe, there's an easy alternative:
- Firstly, go to
./etc/ssh/in your VPS
- Then, edit the file typing
$ nano sshd_config
- Search for
# Authenticationlines, where you should find something like this:
PasswordAuthentication no PubkeyAuthentication yes RSAAuthentication yes
If your configuration matches, at the end of the file (after all the global settings) add this part:
Match User your_username Address your_server_ip_address PasswordAuthentication yes
- Finally type
$ sudo service ssh restart. If it doesn't print anything, you finished! Otherwise, in case of error re-edit the file and restart the process again.
This rule will allow your server to accept a normal SSH authentication from a specific user with the matching IP. Due to static IP addresses for web hostings, it is pretty simple to add this rule just once.
Warning: make sure to use the correct IP and not IP's from Cloudflare or masked IP.
