I'm in WHM right now.. I've tried to restart SSHD 10x or more. No good.
I wasn't able to restart SSHD because after I saved sshd_config PuTTY died, basically the server cut me off and SSHD failed at the same time and its been broken since then.
I found this doing some Advance Googling
The Autofixer is a collection of scripts that can be run from WHM to fix some common issues not otherwise fixable or accessible from command line.
safesshrestart — Restores SSH Config and restarts SSH, should you be locked out.
I think I'm going to tried that and see what happens.
