Wordpress SSH : Public and Private keys incorrect for wp-user
I followed the instructions for setting up SSH to the letter, even using the same username as wp-user.
When I try to install a plugin, it comes up with “Public and Private keys incorrect for wp-user”
I generated the key pair several times. Same problem!
When it didn’t work after several regens, I decided to generate my own using puTTY and then uploaded it to the /home/wp-user directory as wp_rsa, wp_rsa.pub.
In the Wordpress Connection Information page, it shows the following:
..... (I did not give wp-user a password as instructed not to)
I’ve been at this from morning to now evening. Frustrating.
Anyone have any idea why this isn’t working? TIA.
