    yum instal openssh-server says
    package alreaddy installed


    In order to remove openssh-server, try the following command:

    yum remove openssh-server
    Then install again using:

    yum install openssh-server
    You can also reinstall using yum:

    yum reinstall openssh-server

    Did you check if package was removed completely? Try

    rpm -qa | grep openssh*

    Probably openssh client is still install there. - Offshore Web Hosting Provider. Netherlands/Romania || 24x7 Support

    why would you even consider removing and re-installing ssh ?!

    I'm not sure you can uninstall ssh (unless you have another protocol running) because you seem to be doing it via ssh. (uninstalling ssh via ssh)

    I tried it many times but i didnt faced such issue.
    u can try following :-

    Step1: Stop SSH service before uninstalling it.

    service sshd stop

    chkconfig sshd off

    Step2: Remove ssh package from the machine by using below yum command.

    yum remove openssh-server

    or to completely remove the package as well from the machine use below command

    yum erase openssh-server

    Step3: Than install it again:-

    yum install openssh-server* -y

    Hope this will work for you.
