  • Linux server SSH error :: connection refused

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    Problem Statement

    Can't connect to a Linux server(Debian Flavour) via SSH.

    Error Message

    Connection refused



    Solution

    There were unknown changes made in /etc/ssh/ssh_config file. To fix this issue, we had installed OpenSSH server following below mentioned steps:
    1. Logged into VPS through console and fired following commands:

      sudo apt-get purge openssh-server
      mv /etc/ssh /etc/ssh_old
      created new ssh directory in /etc
      sudo apt-get install openssh-server​
    2. Try ssh after performing above steps. If you get "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED", rename the known_hosts from .ssh/ in your local machine and try again.
