comment Disabled root login for SSH in Centos 5.9, key login no longer working
My VPS provider uses the Microsoft Hyper V platform for their servers so I think this gives them some way of rolling back changes. I have asked them to explain how they were able to revert the change I'd made to the sshd_config file. Most importantly in future I will avoid closing my existing SSH window when editing any of these configs to avoid locking myself out again. :)

Thanks, unfortunately there was no other means for me to get into the server, but fortunately my VPS provider had the ability to roll back the change for me so I'm back in now.

Thanks. I'm not sure if there is any console access available, the server is actually a VPS running on a cloud-based server cluster. I've enquired with my server support to see if there is anything available.
