    When do you get this error?
    Are you using root and alpine?

    There's a file on computer that logs hosts that have been connected to...this command removes that file and get's rid of the conflict that you are/were having....very useful...should be a sticky somewhere.

    Easy. Each time you reinstall SSH, the random host-key is regenerated. To make sure one host doesn't pose as another, your local ssh client keeps a database of these hash keys, and if it changes, it refuses to connect, because the assumption is there that some machine might pose as another, which would be a security risk (e.g. phishing of passwords).
    simply edit ~/.ssh/known_hosts to remove the line that has your iPhone's key, or else, just delete the entire file.
