    I'm attempting to give SSH access for a site user and am being extremely unsuccessful. I've created the site and placed a check mark next to Shell Access. Under User & Email, I created a user and placed a check mark next to Administrator and Shell Access. When I attempt to use Putty to access the site, I can enter the username but immediately after entering the password, Putty closes. What have I missed?

    Thanks for any guidance!

    Please have a look at your syslog or auth.log for error messages from your SSH daemon.

    It appears to accept the password because after I type in the password, I get a message "Last login date from blah, blah, blah... and then my putty session closes. Using the same username/password, I can login at the console just fine and using the admin username, I can login via putty from my remote location just fine. Do I need to add the website user to a file?

    Look at /etc/passwd
    make sure the user has /bin/bash

    Did you set up chrooted SSH?

    No...and to be honest, I'm not sure how to do this? I just "playing" around with ISPConfig and I'm not an experienced linux person. Can you point me in the right direction?
