    Hi,

    Setting up rsync backups from to Cpanel servers. I followed the advice in this thread:
    http://forums.cpanel.net/f49/backup-multiple-destinations-169322.html#post709690
    Just as a side note. I am forced to place a password before the key can be made.


    Using the method to check the key I just recive this:
    Enter passphrase for key '/root/.ssh/id_dsa':

    Chances are I may have missed something.

    Thanks
    Frank

    Hello Frank,

    When you generated the key, did you enter a passphrase? If you did, then generate a new key without any passphrase.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I am unable to create a key leaving those boxes empty. When I try to create the key a window pops up "
    Validation Errors" Stating the password must be 5 chars long.

    Hello Frank,

    Are you generating the key in WHM or something?

    It would be better to generate a key in command line:

    Code:
    ssh-keygen -t dsa
    That should be run in /root/.ssh/ location.
