- Subject: ssh can't create .ssh directory
I fixed my /etc/passwd file with mkpasswd -u uname -d domain, but it seemed
to have broken my ssh. When I try to ssh, it says, 'could not create
directory '/home/uname/.ssh'. If mv .ssh to .ssh.save and then try to run
ssh-keygen again, it complains that it can't create the .ssh directory.
Does someone know why this is true? The file permissions look correct, and
I chowned .ssh to make sure.
