When upgrading my system crashed, and now I can not start the service ssh

root@elizium:/# uname -a
Linux elizium 2.6.24-19-server #1 SMP Wed Jun 18 15:18:00 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

You are running stop, don't you mean start? Not sure about Ubuntu syntax but is it service start ssh? – user60129 Nov 23 '11 at 4:26


service ssh start


/etc/init.d/sshd restart

Then verify if ssh runs or not by issuing command:

netstat -ntlp (which will show you sshd listening on port 22)
