This is a direct link to Edit your website via SSH Remote. The password is not provided in the URL, but copied after you click the link. Simply paste when prompted password.

The prompted with the what's the remote host, choose Linux.

WebSSH is an online tool use access your server via SSH. Simply click the link and it will grant you the access. The password is provided via POST so your browser won't save it.

The webSSH session always starts from ~. You most likely want to type cd ~/public_html before doing anything else.

Most likely you'll use this for quick editing files and install depedencies. This is a much better alternative than using commands: from usual deployment tools.

To quickly edit file, use nano or vim. More tools available just like how you would do with linux. But becareful with some keyboard shortcuts like escape or ctrl+w since that most likely interpreted with your browser. We recommend to use VSCode for extensive code editing.

Remember that DOM Cloud is essentially just another VM running under linux, but it's much more secure. You'll not be able to do sudo like everyone else who also uses the server. Your changes and installation is persistent.

You can also install additional programs here but we recommend you to use the deployment feature to install many popular software compilers, to keep you from having headache of googling linux stuff.
