comment RSA keys - virtual hosts
@ErikA - finally found some time to deal with this. After managing to lock myself well out of the server, I duplicated a putty generated key pair to each of my /home/<user>/.ssh/authorized_keys and got both putty and filezilla working properly. I think most of my problem was ownership rules, but also the key simply being on a single line... At any rate - thanks for the help.

comment RSA keys - virtual hosts
thanks for the reply! i may not have time to work on this until tomorrow, but i need to get this worked out (may have a couple more questions). at any rate - i am the only user of this server - it sounds like i should be able make my user keypair work for all sites. probably just need to give ownership of all those dirs to my main user. also "single line" may have been messing me up too. ive been copying and pasting keys into athorized_keys, and i think my editor has been word wrapping... again - thanks for the help!

Thanks for the feedback! Its been an interesting project, for sure. And seems to be running just fine. But its nice to get a thumbs up before I commit and cancel my shared hosting. I know linode offers a backup service, i will look hard at it. Cheer!
