I'm going to need some help restoring my ssh settings as I screwed everything up by calling this command:
chown -R user /
At the moment im not able to access the site through ssh/ftp since the ownership of all the files have been changed. I dont want to reset every ownership but if i could get ssh working i would be able to create a backup of my files and then get a clean install of ubuntu on my server.
Here is the error that i get when im trying to restart ssh:
/var/run/sshd must be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
I'm running ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Any help is very much appreciated.
I am able to run ssh commands on a browser based AJAX console that my hosting company (linode) provides.
