7. SSH Tunneling

fmPreferences - SSH connection.

If you use the Standard Edition of Store Manager for Magento, the number of Store connections is limited to one (1). Should your operation(s) require management of more than one store, you will need to upgrade to our PRO Edition.

This section describes how to setup SSH connection.

If for some reasons direct connection via port 3306 is not allowed, there is another way - secure SSH connection. Actually, SSH is a kind of tunnel between two computers - your and your server. Look here for more details about SSH. Please make sure that SSH access is enabled and configured on your hosting account. Please contact your hosting company to enable and configure it. You will NOT be able to use SSH connection until Hosting Company enables it.

You can set up new SSH host, or you can select the same as database host.

The only info you need is SSH username, password, local port, and remote port number. You're welcome to contact your hosting company to find out your username and password and to verify if the 22 port is used.

SSH form

Note: SSH settings do not override MySQL settings. To connect to your database using SSH you must specify all required MySQL parameters (Direct Connection to MySQL Server) as well as SSH.

For the more secure way to connect to your server with SSH then the password is SSH key.

Starting from the latest update of the Store Manager you are able to load the key from a file directly in SSH sector of Preferences:

Private key

In order to perform this, check the appropriate checkbox and the option for uploading the key will be available (as in the illustration above).

Take a note, the key should be in OpenSSH format. In other cases, you have to convert it by using the PUTTYgen.

Press ‘OK’ or 'Apply' to start connecting.
