Ssh and no such file


#1

In the process of setting up passwordless ssh access (so I can finally get Chron up and running)

Following the wiki procedures (Mac OSX): http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/SSH
Generated Key locally - no problem
tried to loginto host.dreamhost.com and get a name or service not known
workaround: logged into sprite.dreamhost.com
now when I try to
[sprite]$ mv id_rsa.pub .ssh/authorized_keys
mv: cannot stat `id_rsa.pub’: No such file or directory

Anyone have an idea as to how to fix?

Did you upload your local id_rsa.pub file to your DH account? If so, did you put it somewhere other than in the root of your home directory?

host.dreamhost.com” in the instructions is an example. Replace “host” with the actual hostname of the server your account is on. I’ve clarified the instructions on the wiki a bit.
