http://serverfault.com – I have a private key inside /home/myuser/.ssh/privateKey I have a problem connecting to the ssh server, because i always get: Permission denied (publickey). I tried to debug the problem and i find that ssh is reading wrong file, take a look at the output: [damiano@Damiano-PC .ssh]$ ssh -v root@vps1 OpenSSH_5.8p2, OpenSSL 1.0.0g-fips 18 Jan 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for vps1 debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to [] port 2000. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /home/ (HowTos)
