Hello Charles,

Thank you for your question regarding OpenSSH keys. Unfortunately, it is not possible to recover a passphrase once a key has been generated. You will likely need to generate a new key with a new passphrase. I recommend storing the passphrase in a secure place to avoid a similar situation in the future.

As per Alyssa's earlier response, we can't recover the passphrase once the key is generated.  You would need to go into the cPanel to generate a new key and authorize it.  Two factor authentication is different.  You can enable it for the Account Management Panel (AMP) or for cPanel.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.


Kindest Regards,

Where can I get my new  Passphrase for key imported-openssh-key? Is it the same with Two-Factor Authentication?
