Thumbs down Lenny: SSH stopped working overnight?


I was on my server most the night via SSH doing changes (mostly permissions :/ ) and woke up this morning and get "Server unexpectedly closed network connection" from inside the network (via internal IP), AND outside the network (via outside IP)

Obviously I messed something up somewhere right?

Any thoughts on what to verify or check first? Server is up, because I can access a few different hosted pages.

I'm remote today, so I don't have access to the box. I'm assuming i'm SOL until I get to the box tonight to fix locally..

Well.. something is broken. We can't really say what without the log entries. And yes, you'll need local access somehow.
