Enable SSH remote root login on Debian/Ubuntu

Postby serveroffer » 2020 Feb 11, 23:02

Some Debian and Ubuntu based servers have disabled remote root login by default, if you need to enable it, you have update SSH config file.
Open config file:
Code: Select all
nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

search for line:
PermitRootLogin without-password
or
#PermitRootLogin without-password
Change line to:
Code: Select all
PermitRootLogin yes

Exit nano and restart SSH server
Code: Select all
service sshd restart
