SSH, also known as Secure Shell or Secure Socket Shell, is a network protocol that gives users, particularly system administrators, a secure way to access a server over an unsecured network.

At Breeze, security always comes first. You can only use SSH and SFTP to connect to your server.

So let’s see how to connect to SSH in Linux and use it.

What do you need?

To connect SSH on windows, you will need:

SSH Access login Info: You will find the login information on the Breeze dashboard under the Access tab
Key attached to your Server

Step 1: Add a Key to the Store

If you already have a Key link with the store, you can go ahead and skip this step.

An SSH Keypair has 2 parts - Public and Private Key.

The Private Key is secret, known only to the user, and should be encrypted and stored safely. The Public Key can be shared freely with any SSH server to which the user wishes to connect.

To add the Key to the store, please see this.

Now, you have a private key stored in your computer, and the Public Key is attached to the server.

Step 2: Use login information to connect to SSH

Follow the steps to access the SSH login information details:

Login to your Breeze dashboard
Select the Company you like to work on
Click on ‘Sites’ to open the sites list
Select the site you want to work on
Click on 'Access' from the options on the left side

You can find the SSH Host, Port, Username and Command here.

Click on the Command to copy it. Run the Command.

That’s it.

The connection is created and you can use SSH command on server now.
