Unfortunately, my web hosting plan does not allow public key authentication. Apparently, this method is available to VPS and dedicated server customers only.
I've backed up my Ubuntu 11.10 machine using Deja-Dup and I'm sending the backed up files to my web host using rsync.
I would like to automate this process using a script, but as I am not able to use public key authentication, I am forced to manually copy and paste my (strong) SSH password each time to start the process.
Is there a way round this? If so, how?
