I am in a bit of a pickle here and need some advise. so I was changing the port for ssh via SSH from 22 to something more secure. I updated the file, (by simply uncommenting the port command and changing the port number) then restarted SSH services via the whm control panel.
But when I restarted it now shows this error:
Attempting to restart sshd
Waiting for sshd to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.
Unknown HZ value! (382) Assume 100.
sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin
Basically, the only way I know to get to the file that needs to be changed is via SSH but I am now locked out. I read some older posts on here and could not find anything on accessing these server files via FTP and secure FTP....only using SSH.
Its a damn newbie mistake I know, but now I am totally screwed. Any help or advise is appreciated!
any time you modify ssh, you should always enable telnet and make sure it's running. This way if something screws up, you've got a backup way in the server. Of course, you'll need to have another user (not root) to access telnet itself.
It sounds like you need someone familliar with Linux to help you out here. You can find Linux documentation and manuals @ The Linux Documentation Project, or just google your questions and errors. They'll help you out.
If you're not familliar with the Linux OS, then you really, really need to be in touch with an administrative company so that they can do stuff like this for you.

Thanks for the advise. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of being in touch with an admin company since this was kind of thrown on my lap, so I am basically learning more and more everyday. Thanks for forums like this one, which help me a lot.
