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,

I hope someone find this answer useful...
