    The "Domains > domain name > SSH Terminal" button is disabled. How do I enable it?

    You should allow "Shell access to server with FTP user's credentials" at hosting setup page.

    It is set to "/bin/bash." Does "SSH Terminal" require something else as well?

    If that's enabled you should be able to login via any SSH client. The button corresponds to the SSH client embedded in Plesk, which is not necessary to login via SSH, but might be handy for clients that don't have an SSH client themselves (although downloading PuTTY is easy and non-Windows OSes usuaslly come with an SSH client). This is a Plesk component you can install through the autoinstaller or Plesk Updater.

    Thanks, problem solved! I simply needed to install the Plesk component with the Updater.
