The server daemon should be running by default.

What are you trying to do/what is the problem?

ssh -X user@hostname

-X Enables X11 forwarding. This can also be specified on a per-host basis in a configuration file.

SSH (Secure Shell Host)

Secure Shell Host (SSH) is perhaps the most expert security feature used to look after the web communication methods. There are encrypted channels present through which users can access different computers over the Internet and carry out certain specific commands from a distant place. SSH protects the transfer process of digital content between computers connected through the internet. This process also prevents hackers from stealing your valuable data. http://blog.eukhost.com/webhosting/f...ebsite-secure/

So I want it to protect my valuable data. :-)

How to use it on my website server?

ssh allows you to access your machine remotely over the web securely, and do various other things. The main use is to run commands on a remote machine (do admin, etc).

As the earlier poster suggested, from command line, try

ssh user@server

to connect

What I mean is without using SSL(https), is that my http website is also encrypted when some other users are using it? Is SSH is doing the same in https? What I mean is you can use this ssh to make your site encrypted to others while they are accessing your website so the hackers cannot get important data on your site?

You may be able to force tunneling to do something similar, but why wouldn't you use SSL? That is not what ssh is designed for.
