Cannot start ssh server

For some reason the ssh server on my site will not start. I can access the site using the GUI, but I am refused access on ssh. On the GUI I can see that the ssh server is not running, and if I attempt to start it I get the message:

Failed to start service : sh: /tmp/sh: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance



Howdy -- starting the SSH service doesn't need to call /tmp/sh under normal circumstances... it sounds like you may be seeing a system compromise, unfortunately.

Someone else had run into that issue here, where we worked with them regarding that issue:

It looks like you may be using Virtualmin GPL there though... if you're using Virtualmin GPL, and you had any followup questions regarding that issue, you'd want to ask them in the Forums.

You can either start a new thread if you wish, or you can post followup questions in that existing thread.

We do monitor the Forums though, along with lots of wonderful folks in the community. Thanks!
