No access to ssh


Hello,

I just got access to my VPS account and the first thing I did was securing ssh. So I set it in such a way that only I (my ip address) can have access to ssh on a different port. I configured everything correctly and restarted ssh. I logged out and tried to reconnect. Now I can not get into ssh anymore, but I didn't do anything wrong for sure. What can I do now?

Thanks

Contact the host; they should be able to undo what you just did.

Solved. I can have ssh access via my VPS control panel.

Always install something like webmin before securing SSH.
In this way, you won't be locked out completely.

Plus, you must have done something wrongly

You don't really need "something like webmin". After reconfiguring, and restarting, sshd, do not log out. But do log in again to test that the reconfiguration works, while you're still already logged in.

I personally feel webmin is useful.
What if you lose connectivity while testing?

Whatever that can go wrong, will go wrong (sooner or later).
