How to connect to website through SSH in Siteground

Here’s a video tutorial:

Go to Site Tools > Devs > SSH Keys Manager > Add new > Generate

I’d recommend saving the password but it’s not going to ask you for it again.

Once created, click on the vertical ellipsis, view the private key, copy the key and save it on your computer. There’s no extension needed and you can name the key however you’d like.

Go to your terminal and type the following:

ssh -i /path/to/key user@hostname -p18765

Now you should be able to successfully connect to your website using SSH.
