    When I try to connect using ssh, I get the following error:

    Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is

    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/richardmoore/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/richardmoore/.ssh/known_hosts:9
    RSA host key for has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.

    I am running Ubuntu 6.10.

    Have you either reinstalled ISPconfig or regenerated a key or reinstalled the server your connecting to? That's when you get an message like this. If you know that you did something like above, you can remove the offending key on your client.

    This is mostly found in <homedir>/.ssh/authorized_keys. Edit this file and remove the line 10 and try again. It may still complain and you have to remove the next offending key. For editing I suggest to use an editor like 'vi' or 'nano'.
