View Full Version : How do I SSH into my own computer (localhost)

Hey world,

I'm wondering if I can do this. First let me give some background info.
I use puTTY & PSFTP to control my server and manage all its files with command line. So when I install a new thing of Joomla on the server, I just open up puTTY to create the mysql databases, set permissions, then remove installation folder.

Now I am doing some work offline on my localhost, using Xampp. I'm wondering if I can SSH into my computer the same way I do with the real server, so that I can use psftp or putty to control my localhost server.

I've tried just using as server address in puTTy & psftp, both shoot me out.

Is it possible to still use command line when coding on local computer instead of remote server?
