To change the port for the SSH server, follow these steps:
Log in to the server as root using SSH.
Open the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file in your preferred text editor (nano, vi, etc.).
Locate the following line:
Remember that for security reasons, A2 Hosting uses port 7822 for SSH connections instead of the default port 22.
Change 7822 to the new port number that you want to use.
Save the changes to the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, and then exit the text editor.
Restart the SSH service using the appropriate command for your Linux distribution:
For CentOS and Fedora, type:
service sshd restart
For Debian and Ubuntu, type:
service ssh restart
While still logged in as root, in a new terminal window try to log in using the new SSH port number. If the login fails, check your settings. Do not exit your open root session until you are able to log in using the new configuration.
You can use find and locate commands in Linux to find folders and files from the command line. This page shows how to search for folders in Linux using various command line utilities.
Command to find a folder in Linux
find command – Search for files and folder in a directory hierarchy
locate command – Find files and folders by name using prebuilt database/index
How to find folder on Linux using find command
The syntax is:
find /where/to/look/up/ criteria action
find /folder/path/to/look/up/ criteria action
find /folder/path/ -name “folder-name-here”
find /search/path/ -name “folder-name-here” -print
find /search/path/ -name “folder-name-here” -ls
find /folder/ -name “pattern”
Finding a folder named Documents
Example : find /home -name “phlox-pro”
To find a folder named “Documents” in your home directory ($HOME i.e. /home/vivek/ home directory), run:
find $HOME -type d -name “Documents”
find ~ -type d -name “Documents”
find /home/vivek/ -type d -name “Documents”
How to search for case incentive folder names
You can force find command interpret upper and lowercase letters as being the same. For example match Documents, DOCUMENTS, DocuMEnts and so on by passing the -iname option:
find $HOME -type d -iname “Documents”
1. Login to WHM with your login details.
2. Go to restart servicees.
3. Restart SSH server. Once service get restart you will get below information –
Waiting for “sshd” to restart ………waiting for “sshd” to initialize ………finished.
sshd (/usr/sbin/sshd) running as root with PID 904715 (process table check method)
Starting sshd: [ OK ]
Apr 6 05:48:40 server sshd: Server listening on :: port 8872.
Apr 6 05:48:40 server sshd: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 8872.
Apr 6 05:48:39 server sshd: Received signal 15; terminating.
sshd restarted successfully.
In the above output, you can see 8872 is the SSH port.
