SSH issues


#1

I’m having some issues with accessing one of my domains via SSH and I have no idea why, but I’m pretty sure it’s something obvious and I"m being stupid here.

I can access it fine and upload/download files by putting the details into filezilla but on any command line I get this

[code] m
mmm mmm mmmm m m mmm mmm mm#mm
#" " #" “# #” “# “m m” #” " " # #

# # # # #m# # m"""#

#mm” “#m#” ##m#" “# “#mm” “mm”# “mm
# m”
” ""

when I expect to get

[code] m
mmm mmm mmmm m m mmm mmm mm#mm
#" " #" “# #” “# “m m” #” " " # #

# # # # #m# # m"""#

#mm” “#m#” ##m#" “# “#mm” “mm”# “mm
# m”
” ""

[copycat]$[/code]

like I do on other domains.

when I try to input any command into the former, nothing happens for a few seconds, then it terminates.

Double-check that the user you’re trying to log in with is a shell user and not an FTP or SFTP user in the control panel - https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=users.users&

That was exactly it, thank you! I knew I was missing something obvious.
