SSH - authorized keys file


#1

I’m going through the steps at this page and having a problem:

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/SSH

The issue is at the step where I enter this command:

mv id_rsa.pub .ssh/authorized_keys

The message I get back is “mv: cannot create regular file `.ssh/authorized_keys’: No such file or directory”

All previous steps completed without error. What am I missing?

You may need to create the .ssh directory first. You can do that with ‘mkdir .ssh’.

This worked. Thank you! I have updated the wiki walkthrough with that caveat.
