- Can't login using ssh as root 5 answers
When I enter the password it gives me the following error:
login: root Password: My-password Login incorrect
I have tried SSH via Putty as well as WinSCP. I get Network Error: Connection refused.
So what could have gone wrong?
Please Note: root is not the only user on this machine, I can access with another account and perform some command .
I tried to reset the root password following the instructions on some other site. All went well, except I get the same error despite changing the password!
The last major thing I did was : create user , create group , associate the user to the group created and than change folder dir to the user inside etc/passwd. After that I start to have the root problem , so i cancel the user and the group created but i still facing the same problem
