Migrate over sftp - unable to authenticate

Postby PeteyNice » Fri Oct 19, 2012 8:16 am

I am testing using the migrate function to migrate an application over sftp. No matter what I try I receive an error:

Could not authenicate with the provided login and password.

Technical Error:


I know the credentials are correct. I do not see anything in the Installatron logs or the auth.log on the machine I am importing from about any error.

Hello,

Likely the server hosting Installatron does not support PHP's SFTP extension. Please try FTP or FTPS if it's supported by the source server.

If you have SSH access to the Installatron server, check if "ssh2" is enabled:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/installatron/bin/php -c /usr/local/installatron/etc/php.ini -m


If there are any questions let us know.

Thank you,
Phil

Thanks Phil for providing the right steps to fix the login issues. I was also facing similar login issues with the software installed in my system. My Login and password were not working at all, I have done the steps you shared and that fixed the problem for me.
