    Hello, i want to connect to another host using:

    $connection = ssh2_connect('', 22, array('hostkey'=>'ssh-rsa'));

    if (ssh2_auth_pubkey_file($connection, 'username',
    '/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa', 'secret')) {
    echo "Public Key Authentication Successful\n";
    } else {
    die('Public Key Authentication Failed');

    this connection function.

    so i created a keypair on the host i want to connect to and moved both keys to the other host the webserver runs on.

    my problem is this function always returns false :/

    so for debug reasons, where can i make the sshdemon log every connection attempt?

    auth.log seems to log only authentication attempts but no connection attempts.
