Select Yes to enable SSH and set the new password for the user you want to use.

In order to enable SSH, the password for a user called pi cannot be the default raspberry.
You must create a different password if you have a pi user that you will be accessing via SSH if you want this program to enable SSH, it will fail if you don’t.

Use normal AlphaNumeric, the only special characters allowed are .,@-_/

vidéo obsoléte, ne correspond plus à la version actuelle

@nextcloudpi could someone please take a look at this and update the documentation.

I dont see how the video is obsolete. It is still possible to enable ssh through both ncp-config and ncp-panel.
