See how to make the SSH restore connection on VaultPress for SiteGround
[wlm_private “Install and Secure|Webmaster 5|Webmaster 6”]
SiteGround does things a little differently on just about everything.
You can’t upload the required RSA keys to the .ssh > authorized_keys file like you can on other hosts. If you edit that file, it will lose all the settings they have in there by default.
Instead you’ll want to use the SSH/Shell Access tool in cPanel.
It will create a separate file in the .ssh folder (which is in the root below public_html).
That file will be called authorized_keys2.
For the Server Address – be sure to use the IP address of the host instead of the domain name or hostname.
This ensures that the connection will make, even if the site is on Cloudflare.
After it tests the connections, don’t be surprised to see a fail message like this:
The connection will still make, though.
I have yet to get the SFTP connection working.
But as long as you have the SSH and FTP connections, you can restore the site from VaultPress fast!
