Basics like how to use ssh, how to login to DA etc..How to use SSH – SSH is a tool used to connect to your server. This is how 95% of your system is setup.
To use ssh, you will need an ssh client for your local computer. We are recommending PuTTY
At Once you have installed your ssh client, load it up and you should be giving a space to enter some information. You will want to select “SSH” on port 22. You can then past in the name of your server “domain.com” or the ip “184.108.40.206” in the the space that says “Host Name (or IP Address)”.
If there you have entered all information correctly, you should be prompted with a large black screen asking for your login information.
If then you are doing system tasks, you will probably need root access.
Then If you have root access, enter “root” and press enter.. sometimes it can take several seconds before you see any change.
Enter the root password (and press enter), and if there everything works well, you should see a command prompt, ex:
Now You are on the server. This is your starting point.
From here now you can do anything, including destroy your server, so you must be very careful with the commands you enter.
And Some basic commands include:
file1.txt file2.txt file3.txt
Change Directories: cd
[root@server]# cd /home/admin
Remove a file: rm
[root@server]# rm file1.txt
rm: remove `file1.txt’ ? y
Once you have finished working, you can type
and the ssh window should be closed.
