You can connect your website(SFTP) by using our Public Key or by using your own Private Key. Setting up website connection using Public Key is easier, however we recommend you use Private Key or Encrypted Private Key with password.
Using Our Public Key:
When connecting your website, toggle "Use Our Public Key" to view our backup server public key which you need can add to your server's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
This public key will allow our backup servers to connect without need for password.
Using Your Private Key:
You can use your own Private Key to connect your website(SFTP). When connecting your website then toggle "Use Your Private Key" and then add your private key.
It's recommend that you use Encrypted Private Key with password.
To generate Private Key, please follow these steps.
Login to your SSH terminal and enter.
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "email@example.com"
Once key is generated then make sure you add Public Key part of your private key to file ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
