Can I use SSH?

SSH console access is available as an experimental feature. To connect, please use these settings in your favorite SSH client, such as PuTTY:

  • Server: (e.g.
  • Port: 22
  • Protocol: SFTP or SCP
  • Username: your@entrecloud.user
  • Password: your Entrecloud password (or alternatively you can set up SSH keys in the Entrecloud App)

However, keep in mind that the SSH access has some limitations:

  • The SSH console access is only intended for maintaining your site. Using it for automated, CPU or memory intensive processes is not allowed.
  • You cannot leave scripts running after you quit the console. The system will automatically stop your process if you close the connection.
  • SSH agent forwarding is not possible yet.
  • MySQL access is not possible yet.
