Configuring SFTP On Your Dedicated Server

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) is one secure file protocol used to manage, and transfer files over an encrypted transport connection. In comparison to the traditional FTP protocol, it offers all the functionality in a more secure and easier to configure way.

The lesson guides you on how to connect your cPanel account via SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol or Secure File Transfer Protocol).

SFTP clients generally require the following information to make a connection to the server. Open your SFTP client and configure it with the following information:

  1. Hostname — Your server’s hostname (for example, hostname.yourdomain.com)
  2. SSH port number — The port number on which sshd listens (for instance, 22)
  3. Security — Whether the client combines FTP and SFTP functionality
  4. Username — The SSH username that the client uses to connect to the server
  5. Password — The SSH user’s password
  6. Private Key — The SSH user’s private key

Lets Make This Easier For You,

  • In step number six, this is the absolute path to a private key on your local machine (for instance, c:\data\id_dsa)
  • In step number four, the username can be a valid cPanel account username or the root user
  • Remember, you cannot use your FTP account to connect via SFTP
  • SFTP is not just FTP over SSH. Instead, it is an entirely separate protocol
  • cPanel users can generate and download a private key via cPanel’s SSH Access interface via cPanel -> Home -> Security -> SSH Access
  • The root users can generate and download a private key via WHM’s Manage root’s SSH Keys interface on a dedicated server or VPS via WHM -> Home -> Security Center -> Manage root’s, SSH Keys

Sometimes, you may see a warning that the host of the server is unknown. To cut back on such situations in the future, accept the key and store it on your local machine.

How To Scan Your cPanel Account For Security Threats?

The free virus scanner provided on every cPanel hosting, VPS, and the Dedicated Server allows you to scan your account for possible security threats.

To use it, simply login to your SANGKRIT.net account and perform the steps given below:

  1. Select a service to scan:
    • Scan Mail — To scan all of your account’s mail folders
    • Scan Entire Home Directory — To scan your account’s home directory
    • Scan Public FTP Space — To scan all of the publicly accessible folders via FTP services
    • Scan Public Web Space — To scan all of the publicly accessible folders via the web
  2. After selecting a service, click the Scan Now button
  3. Here, the scanning process starts and displays you a new interface with the following information:
    • File — Displays the number of files that the system has scanned as well as the total number of files to be scanned
    • Data — Displays the amount of data the system has scanned as well as the total amount of data to be scanned
    • Scanner Progress — Displays the progress of the scan
    • Infected Files — Displays malicious stuff the scanner has detected

The server may take several minutes to complete the scan. If the scanner identifies a threat, it will prompt you to perform an action. Once the scan is complete, you will be returned to your main Virus Scanner interface.

How To Identify & Fix HTTP Errors Of Your Website?

Every HTTP error has an HTTP code that describes the status of a URL to the client. These three-digit codes include error messages that visitors encounter.

Following are the five classes of HTTP codes divided into categories, by the first digit:

  1. Errors starting with 1, 2, or 3 are fully functional requests
  2. Errors starting with 4 are client-side error, the most common error codes span 400 to 404
  3. Errors starting with 5 are server-side error, the most common error codes span 500 to 510

4xx Errors

These errors show up where there is a problem with the client’s request (web browser etc), but often point to a problem on a website.

For instance: You have a broken link on your website, the client requests it and receives a 404 error page. That is how it works.

To resolve this you can check for broken links on your website. On WordPress this can be either done by a plugin or you can check error pages from cPanel -> Home -> Advanced -> Error Pages.

400 Bad Request

It happens when the user’s request contains an incorrect syntax.

401 Unauthorized

The error shows up when the requested file is a protected one and requires authentication, such as a username and password.

403 Forbidden

In general, this happens when the index file is missing on your server or the root directory is empty, or when you have purchased a new hosting and have not uploaded your website or have not installed WordPress, etc.

Other times, it happens when the server stops the visitor to access the requested file. To resolve this, check for the file’s permission settings. Also see whether the system protects the file in cPanel’s Indexes interface (cPanel -> Home -> Advanced -> Indexes).

404 Not Found

When the server doesn’t find the requested URL. Commonly occurs when a visitor mistypes a URL or you have interlinked to a dead URL.

Managed WordPress users may use a permalink finder plugin to reduce this error to zero.

5xx Errors

Such errors occur when a server fails to full fill an apparently-valid request made by the client. These errors are a little bit complicated because sometimes a chain of servers handles an HTTP request which means that the error may also come from other server.

In WordPress, you can resolve it by testing your themes and plugins as it generally comes from there.

Comment below for any assistance in this regard.

500 Internal Server Error

The error is a result of misconfiguration, especially when the server finds some unexpected condition and fails to gather any information about the real problem it is facing.

501 Not Implemented

Comes when the server does not support the client’s chosen HTTP method. Also, occurs on out-of-date servers. To resolve, try reloading your page, clear the browser cache. Other issues might include viruses or malware or an overload on your server.

502 Bad Gateway

Occurs when proxy servers are badly configured or IP communication between backend systems is poor or when the client’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) is overloaded. May also occur due to imroperly configured firewall functions.

Clearing the client’s (web browser) cache sometimes work in resolving this issue. Other times, you may need to report the issue to an expert. You may also comment here for help.

Try to start a new browser session, restart your system and network, change DNS and clear your cache.

503 Service Unavailable

When a server fails to handle requests due to a temporary overload or when the server is temporarily under maintenance. Generally happens when you update your website’s software. To resolve, simply wait.

504 Gateway Timeout

Comes when a server did not receive a timely response. Can happen temporarily or when your server starts to go out of resources or due to slow communication between upstream servers. To resolve, look for any server connectivity issues, check the requested page code, test your firewall for any faults.

505 HTTP Version Not Supported

When the server refuses to allow the HTTP protocol that the client system specifies. This error generally occurs when the user’s system incorrectly specifies the protocol. To resolve, switch to a modern web browser.

506 Variant Also Negotiates

Means the server is not properly configured. To resolve this issue, contact an expert or research yourself or comment below.

507 Insufficient Storage

Simply means that the server is out of free memory. The error comes when requested application fails to allocate necessary server resources. To resolve this issue, contact an expert or research yourself or comment below.

509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

This means that your server has reached its bandwidth limit, and you need more resources. To resolve, wait every time until the limit resets or try reducing your resource usage or upgrade your hosting plan or move to a dedicated server.

510 Not Extended

Shows up when the webserver does not support the extension attached to the HTTP request. To resolve, wait every time until the limit resets, or reduce your resource usage, or upgrade your hosting plan, or move to a dedicated server.

Managing Domain’s Root Directory On Your cPanel Hosting Account

The root directory of your website has the content that loads when visitors access your domain name in a web browser. You need to put your “index file” in your website’s root directory for visitors to see your website, otherwise, it will display the FORBIDDEN page or files and folder archive list.

Website-related applications might also need to know your website’s root directory. Website’s root directory depends on whether the domain name is your primary domain name, addon domain or another type.

  1. Your primary domain name’s root directory is /public_html.
  2. Addon and subdomain names’ root directories were specified when they were set up.

Small hosting plans such as starter and economy allows you to host one domain which by default is your public_html.

Other hosting options that lets you host multiple domains, public_html becomes your primary domain (the domain name used to reference your hosting account) and other domain names are located either in your home directory or public_html or anywhere else with their names as specified while adding them from addon domain section of your cPanel.

For instance: By default addon domain yourname.com would be added as yourname.com folder in your cPanel’s home directory which can be accessed from the File Manager. (The home directory is the folder above the public_html directory on your hosting account.)

How to find Domains listed in cPanel?

Log in to your SANGKRIT.net account and follow these steps:

  1. Click Web Hosting.
