I have been reading the DH Wiki regarding the subjects in the well, subject, here http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/MySQL however I am still having some issues.
Being an outright n00b at using PuTTY and working within shell accounts (my last host didn’t support them) I understand that i should login to my account via SSH using the code: “ssh -l yourlogin www.yourdomain.com” but what I don’t understand is what is the format for “yourlogin”. Is it just my username, or my username and password (in either case, I know it’s the one I set up specifically with shell access) and is it simply the username and/or password or do I need any special delimiters, like -u and-p?
Currently when I try to log in using the above format, I get the message in PuTTY “Using Keyboard-interactive authentication. Password:” however I cannot enter a password, so I only get an access denied error.
I am not quite sure what to do, so any help is appreciated and I will provide as much more information is requested (within reason).
