How to enable ssh access without public/private keys [closed]

I want to access my server via terminal like this:

Password: (enters password)

I have access to cpanel for this server. There is a section called “SSH access” where I can create public/private keys. I don’t know how to use them really and I don’t want them currently. I just want to specify my password all the time.

But I don’t see such a config option anywhere.. Where do I look? Can I do this with cpanel only or I need some extra access to this server?

If I try to ssh now, server responds like this:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).


Change PasswordAuthentication no to PasswordAuthentication yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restart sshd.
