I'm very new to owning a dedicated server. I'm learning and was configuring one I bought with OVH. I was configuring what I thought was other SHH users.
It was a sshd_config. I appended this to the very bottom of the file:
Port 24 PermitRootLogin no AllowUsers zax
After that I logged off putty and WinSCP and attempted to log back into the servver. It was giving me denied access.
I know OVH is a budget provider, and I attempted to ask them support and they replied as the only option is to re-install the OS.
I'm totally fine with, because I didn't do much with the OS but I'd rather still want to make sure if theres any other option to get back into the OS. So my question is: Is there any other way to get back into the OS?
If it is the only option, what do I input into the following options to re-install an OS?
It's a 64-bit Ubuntu Server.
