the most common causes for this problem on Unslung. If anyone other
than root can write to any directory or file in the complete path from /
through all the intermediate directories down to the authorised_keys
file, then it will not allow the connection.
- Thanks Mike.
So I uninstalled ssh, reinstalled it and yes I can log directly with
the root password. Yay.
Now to move forward with this key thing !
- Per Mike's advice I removed the package; reinstalled it, checked that
it worked without setting a key pair.
I then did the wiki instructions again and now it works !
I'm not sure it changed anything permission-wise...
Anyway thanks for your quick support !
