How to SFTP into a Virtual Server on Your Joyent Accelerator

I’m finally getting around to setting up my Joyent Accelerator.

As I read through the ‘Getting Started with Joyent Accelerator’ wiki, things were going smoothly.

Updating the nameserver at my registrar was unexpectedly fast and easy, as was signing into webmin, setting up a virtual server, a subversion repo, and a couple users.

Now, which of the half dozen name/pass combos do I use for SFTP?
Answer: The admin of the virtual server.

How to find these credentials:

  1. Select ‘Edit Virtual Server’
  2. Expand ‘Configurable Settings’
  3. Click ‘Show…’

Now SFTP in, and everything should look as expected.
