I am running into an odd issue regarding SSH keys.

I created a set of keys and when I try to authorize the public.key it says "xxx.pub has been Authorized" but when I go back to manage SSH keys; the same key says in it is unauthorized.

Tried this a few times before I realize it wasn't going to magically work.. So .. what gives? What magic step am I missing? :p

Thanks,

well... just to confuse the issue even further... I decided to give the key a try anyways and guess what... it worked.. go figure!

So there must be a bug in WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9 that does not output the pub.key authorization status correctly; which also means you cannot unauthorize a pub.key either which might be somewhat of a security issue as you think the key is not usable when in fact it still is.

Kind Regards,

I have multiple machines on 11.25.0 (from STABLE to CURRENT) where it's authorizing properly in Manage SSH Keys area in WHM.

Your best bet would be to open a ticket to see what's going on in WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel area.
