Question

why a USER being asked frequnetly to insert the password on SFTP?

  • Posted January 17, 2014

Hi everyone,

I got weird issue in here. I followed the tut in this article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-filezilla-to-transfer-and-manage-files-securely-on-your-vps

and found that a user “not the root” is being asked every time and every action to go for to insert the password again. sounds like the ssh for a user doesn’t function…!! if it does, then why would it ask for the password …

any idea??

Thanks

I think I found the answer to my question. It turned out that SSH key was not set properly so I had to double check the authorized file to insert the right key, <br> <br>I hope someone find this answer useful…
