    Hello, I have Shell Access enabled on my hosting account using cpanel. Only problem is, I dont know anything about it. I know what it does, and by the sound of it, it sounds like something that I would really want to use. When I try to run it, A login app comes up, I login and then a java application comes up that says connected, but im not sure what the heck to do from there. If somebody could please help me, or give me a link to something that can help me, I would appreciate it a ton. Thanks a lot, and sorry if this question is a little newbish.

    -Bob

    The above links should walk you through a basic list of commands... now, I don't know what level of SSH you have (whether you are running under BASH, or jailed Shell), so some may not work for you. But it's not likely that you will need most of them anyway. About the only real use for SSH to web users is the ability to package, and unpack compressed content. Most everything else could just as easily be done with the point&click interface provided in cPanel.
