I created a server through Cleaver Cloud; how can I have root access via SFTP and edit/delete server files via FileZilla/WinSCP?
It depends on the FTP app that you are using but basically you need to do this:
- Add public part of an SSH key to the server via Cleaver. This key, right now, adds the key under user
- You can now use the private part of the above key to login from a terminal:
sftp -i <FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_SSH_PRIVATE_KEY> cleaver@<IP ADDRESS HERE>
- Once login you can switch to a root user:
This is from a terminal but the step should be same for logging in from a client.
Something to keep in mind:
For security reason, we disable logging in with password that’s why you need a SSH key. In future we could allow an easier way to add FTP users with passwords so that you don’t have to use a key. If you like to have this feature, please submit a feature request so that we can track it.
