I am trying to SSH to a mysql DB on my web server.
First I tried using PuTTY on windows 7. put in my domain and clicked open. A command prompt comes up and asks me for a user. I put in my ftp user name and hit enter. I am then asked for a password. I put in the FTP password, the command line closes. Now what?
I then tried using ubuntu. I ran
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org I was then asked for a password. I put my ftp password. I was told Permission denied.
I do not know what to do. I have never used SSH before, I have always used phpmyadmin for MySQL. The only reason I am trying to use SSH now is because I tried to create a TRIGGER and was told I need SUPER privilege for this. I asked the hosting DBA and he told me I should connect using SSH.
