SCRDS - Server Not Fully Loading?
Here you go! As requested, I have confirmed after the install and a reboot SSH is rejected!
@Stigin that link is dead for me
Okay, so the configs are not changing what I would expect, so it's acting like the config is now bad, which is not good.
Can you get the SSH logs from when you start the service?
I restarted the SSH service and SCP'd the auth.log out to another vps to download it.
Can you provide the service startup logs as well? Want to know if there's something failing after we do the install.
Does SSH just say connection refused or is it just denying the root user?
Hi, Connection says refused for any user including root.
Are you able to tell me the specific log file you are looking for?
Then it means the service stopped running. The specific file would depend on the distro of Linux you are using.
Okay - Ubuntu 14.04
If you can edit that file, you can apply a fix
Line 183 of your config is actually bad (and it appears we never added a newline when we append, so surprised yours was the first to fail there)
PasswordAuthentication yesMatch group scalesuser
It should be
Match group scalesuser
I can confirm this has fixed it.
I appreciate your replies and extended troubleshooting :)
