I have a Linode virtual server that I made go down yesterday.
Basically, I killed
First time I issued this command, I forgot
sudo so it just dropped my connection.
Next time, I issued
sudo killall sshd
and I couldn't connect anymore, as it said
ssh: connect to host <...> port 22: Connection refused
Now, I know that was stupid and obviously I have to restore it just as soon as possible.
I thought reboot would solve the problem, however after rebooting (from Linode dashboard) the server is not even pingable, let alone accepts SSH.
What happened and how do I solve it?
Obviously, I don't have root access now, however I can access file system of this machine from a different server, and I can reboot it at any time.
