    Hi,
    Today I couldn't connect to my WHM account through ssh using ssh keys. It stopped working from one day to another and I cannot recall changing any settings. I deleted all keys on both my computer and WHM, reinstalled keys but no luck with WHM. I can, however, log into cPanel accounts with the same keys but not on my whm root account.
    Everything it says is:
    Permission denied (publickey).

    I can connect through SSH using the password but not with the keys.

    What am I missing, what settings should I try to tweak?

    Thanks for the help,

    regards,
