How do I enable SFTP via CPanel/WHM?


Using CPanel, how do I enable SFTP? I have SSH enabled but it's not a bash shell. I think you have to change the shell to Bash so how is that done via the WHM for each site or the sites CPanel?

Thanks

The root WHM uer will have to define what shell you get, contact your host. In any case, this is done in WHM not CPanel.

I have CPanel's WHM but only have an option "Enable Shell." Where would it be located in the WHM (Cpanels version of WHM)?

Do you have root access to the machine?

No this is shared not VPS. I don't want to have to contact support to enable Bash for each account .

Oh well another strike against Site5. I am hating them more and more by the minute. Their "Stripped" control panel, no SFTP access when shell is enabled, etc.

Thanks for the help.

Try using a program called "Tuneller" to login to shell (Site5 should provide you with this at least, AFAIK), you can google for it.

That should open an FTP like window once you login and it is considered secure like SFTP.

You will probably have to contact the host who has root access

You need either full SSH access - or the more likely jailed SSH access. Otherwise SFTP won't work.

SFTP works fine on site5 reseller accounts, which are standard CPanel / WHM. You just need to enable shell (jailshell). If it's not working for you try asking their support.

Edit: Just saw your other thread - sftp also works on their shared accounts with ssh enabled.

Don't feel like logging in right now, but you need bash to be able to do SFTP. I have an SFTP app (Transmit) so I know how SFTP works (since it's the only way I can access my home network when away).
