When you first set up an Acquia Dev Cloud server, it’s in web-operated mode. You interact with the server through the web interface.

But you can also log in with SSH to the Acquia Dev Cloud and execute commands that way.

First, create an SSH key.

Then upload the key to the Acquia Dev Cloud.

Click on Users and Keys:

Click on Add SSH Key:

Then paste your SSH key into the text box. On Linux, it’ll often be the file ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub or another file with .pub as an extension:

Save the key:

Acquia then displays the key as having been entered:

You should now be able to log in using SSH without a password.

ssh myserver@srv-313.devcloud.hosting.acquia.com

One Response to “Adding an SSH Key to an Acquia Dev Cloud Server”

  1. May I just say what a relief to discover someone that actually understands what they are talking about over the
    internet. You actually realize how to bring a problem
    to light and make it important. More people need to look at this
    and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
