I tried to access ssh and I got a message:

Host key verification failed

Does anyone know how to correct this so I can get shell access to my host?

I would try removing that host from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file.

I removed the host from my known_hosts file. That allowed me to log in, but it dumped me in /home/admin, which is now empty. I know that my files are not gone because I can log into the website with that host name ( and see the home page. (I have to bypass the complaints about it not having a key because I haven't installed the certificate files yet.)

So, now I can log in, but I can't see my files.

That doesn't make any sense. Does anyone have any ideas what's going on?
