I'm new to Dreamhost. I'm currently using the free domain (mydomain.dreamhost.com) before I transfer over my real domain. I am having problems with SSH/Telnet.
With the default user that was setup for my account, I am unable to telnet/SSH in to the site. I recieve an access denied message. I enabled Telnet/SSH via the control panel area several days ago. I never received any form of email confirmation of this action from Dreamhost.
I set up a second user and gave it Telnet/SSH priveleges. I received email confirmation of this from Dreamhost. I AM able to Telnet/SSH into the server (Zuma) with this second account. I can change directories and eventually get to the directory for the temp/free domain. The problem is that once I'm there, I cannot chmod, rename files, etc. Permission denied.
Since the main account does not allow me to Telnet/SSH and the second account allows me to do that but does not let me do basis directory/file functions - how can I do things like 'chmod' on the temp/free domain and if I transfer me real domains will the problem exist for them too?
