Question

What is the difference between options of "Access to the server over SSH" parameter in Web Hosting Access settings for domain?

Answer

Plesk allows to configure different option for "Access to the server over SSH" for each website:

image

  • Forbidden - no remote access
  • /bin/sh - /bin/sh (which is another name of /bin/bash in majority of Linux distributions) will be used to execute commands in remote session
  • /bin/bash - Bourne-again shell (/bin/bash) will be used in the remote session to execute commands
  • /sbin/nologin - remote access to the server using SSH will be denied
  • /bin/tcsh -  Enriched C shell (/bin/tcsh) will be used to execute commands in remote session
  • /bin/csh - C shell (/bin/csh) will be used to execute commands in remote session
  • /bin/bash (chrooted) -- /bin/bash will be used to execute commands in chrooted environment
  • /bin/rbash - Restricted Bourne-again shell will be used to execute commands in remote session

Note: neither of the above options do not affect remote access over FTP
