    cPanel doc: Create a New SSH Key

    Excerpt: "Once WHM has generated the key, it will display the path to the key on your server. Next, the key will have to be copied to the machine from which you wish to access the web server."

    As per this, I can generate key pair from the WHM, and add the public key on remote system from where I need to gain access to this WHM server.

    I've tried this, but this doesn't work. Can someone guide me please? Thanks

    I thought its always the other way, where keys need to be generated on the system from where I need to gain access, and add the public key on the WHM server.
