To establish a connection to your project using PuTTY, proceed as follows:
You have already created a project in the Cloud Panel.
You have downloaded PuTTY.
You are in the Managed Cloud Hosting > Projects section.
Select a project.
On the Website tab, click next to Status:.
Enter the desired password and then enter it again in the next box.
SFTP/SSH access is activated and the login data is displayed in the SFTP/SSH section.
Please make note of the following information:
Host name: The host/server name to be used for SFTP/SSH connections.
Port: The port to be used for SFTP/SSH connections.
User: The user name to be used for SFTP/SSH connections.
Enter your host name in the Host Name (or IP address) field.
Activate the SSH connection type in the Connection type section.
Please note: A warning message appears the first time you log in. Because the SSH server was previously unknown, PuTTY does not have the key stored.
To allow the connection and save the key for future sessions, click Yes.
The terminal window opens.
Log in with your SFTP/SSH user name and your password.
Once you log in, you will see the directories where your project files are stored.
Optional: To show the complete directory path, enter the command pwd. Example:
Unlike on a root server such as the Cloud Server, your user rights will be limited in Managed Cloud Hosting, as IONOS handles system administration for you. That is why, for example, you cannot edit your web server's configuration files or install your own programs via the package manager.
