    I need to upload a file on my root folder but getting to root via ftp is causing me headaches. Anyone know how I can get to root via FTP ? I've tried with FileZilla, CuteFTP and some other program support recommended but none of them work. I've also tried enabling SSH on WHM but it keeps failing :( .How do you access your root directory and see it in folder mode ? (not talking about SSH prompt with all dat command stuff) .

    I have tried WinSCP . on login i put the following.

    host :
    login: mylogin
    pass: mypass

    I get the following error

    Network Error : Connection Refused :(

    any other ideas paul ?

    If you want FTP-like root level access, then put root into the login field and root password into the password field. As for connection refused - please refer to your welcome email for custom ssh port number. My bet is that you're trying to connect over standard ssh port (22/tcp).

    Paul! :D . You are a living legend!. You've made my day. You bet right!. I was trying to connect via ssh port 22 instead of ssh port 2200 .

    Thank you paul. Support really does mean support on KnownHost unlike other services !

    Maybe this should be moved to the VPS section, as root is only possible with a VPS....

    Does anyone know if you can use FlashFXP to connect to the root?

    I have options for SSL but no mention of SSH

    FlashFXP is only a FTP client. So no, you would not be able to.
