    I have Ubuntu 14.04, ISPConfig 3 and Apache. I have several sites on the server and on one of them I have a PHP page that pick some data (from AD), store it in a file and uploads it to another server via SFTP. It have been working until now. The other party have changed server and the SSH key have changed.
    I have done this once but it was some years ago and now I need some help.

    Were and how do I change remote SSH key (.ssh/known_hosts?) for my web user? The user who owns the files are web4.

    Create a ssh user in ispconfig for this website, it has to be a non jailed user and add the ssk key in the ssh key field. use the username of this newly created user to copy the files with ssh.

    Thank you,
    I created a SSH user, logged in and connected to the remote server via SFTP. Is is working and a "known_hosts" file was created.

    I should copy ssk key, from where?

    How can I use this account to do the SFTP connection? The .ssh/known_hosts is inside web4 dicectory.
