SSHing into a Gitorious install

apps

#1

I installed Gitorious as mentioned at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Gitorious

But when trying to SSH into the host I get “PTY allocation request failed on channel 0”

This seems to be a feature of Gitorious because it is only allowing git over SSH but not interactive SSH connections.

I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get to my files now though other than via FTP; because they are in /home/newuser instead of /home/myusername obviously (newuser being the user I created for the Gitorious install and myusername being the user of my main account).

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there really no way to SSH in so I can do things like edit config files and manage git hooks?[hr]
Of course I’m an idiot, I can just use “su newuser”
