I have ISPConfig 2.2.3 (maybe) and host some websites now. The problem is I can not make shell access for client to work. FTP, phpMyAdmin are working just fine. Here is what I set in ISPConfig : Under the "Sites" -> "ISP User", here are my setting : Email address : email@example.com Username: me Password: xxxxx Administrator : V (means checked) Shell Access : V (chekced) Also on "Sites" -> "Basic", Shell Access is checked. Then I saved everything. But when I try to ssh, it always ask for password again and again. FTP and other thing are fine. Where did I get wrong?? I restarted Apache and SSH, but didnt help.
