    Hello,

    I'm interested by adding the ssh function for my clients.

    But I can't find answer for this question :

    How is restricted ssh access ? It's not dangerous to active it in a production environment ?
    A client can only access to his site with a ssh access, correct ? Not anywhere on the server ?

    Thank you in advance and sorry for my English !

    Go on, have a guess
    If you want to restrict SSH access then use the Jailshell feature when you enable it. This creates access to a subset of the system instead of free access with a normal shell. However, it's still not "safe" and I would only recommend enabling it if there's an absolute need for it due to the potential for abuse. That said, it's only one aspect of security since allowing perl scripts to run provides much greater access to the system than a Jailshell does anyway.
