Let’s get started 🚀

Add a New SSH Key

Step 1: Sign In to your InstaWP account to access the dashboard.

Step 2: Select the My Account option from the dropdown menu after clicking on the Profile icon in the top-right corner.

You will be taken to the Profile setting page.

Step 3: Select SSH Key from the left menu of the interface.

You will be taken to the SSH keys page.

Step 4: Click on the Add New SSH Key button from the right side of the interface.

A new dialog window will appear, asking you to Add an SSH Key by giving a label and a public key.

Note: To generate a public key, you need to select Git Repository of private type. For more information, please refer to the Add Deployment document.

Step 5: After filling up the fields, click on the SAVE SSH KEY button.

At last, you will see a success message on your screen.

Use an SSH Key

InstaWP allows you to use an SSH key for accessing password-less login for your website.

To enable SSH for a site, you can refer to the Enable SFTP & SSH document.

💡 Did you know - You could create a new SFTP/SSH user and utilize the connection to establish a single sign-on for your InstaWP live hosted site without any login credentials of that user. Learn about manage hosting.
