I currently have a shared plan on asmallorange because I wanted to give them a try. I am trying to establish some security when it comes to file transfers.
Through cPanel, I created an SSH key. The name of it is
id_rsa and it is currently "not authorized".
I then went into WinSCP. I set up an SFTP connection using the following info:
Host: (mydomain.com) Port: 22 Username: (cPanel username) Password: (cPanel password)
The problem is that it let me in. I didn't even have to enter any type of key information, it just let me into the server and I can see all the files.
Why is this happening and how do I set this up properly, so that this is secure?
