My server only allowed passwordless root login via ssh. For example, ssh firstname.lastname@example.org would get me right in. I wanted to enable user login, e.g. ssh email@example.com would ask for a password.
I edited the sshd_config file by commenting out the line:
and restarted the ssh server
I was immediately kicked off of the server, and now when I enter either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, I get this error:
ssh: connect to host myserver.com port 22: Connection refused
Is there any way to get ssh access back into my server, and potentially enable user logins?
