How to Start, Stop, and Restart OpenSSH on Ubuntu 14.04

No Comments Share:

On some Linux systems, typing /etc/init.d/sshd restart will bounce the sshd process. However, if that fails to work, try the following syntax to restart OpenSSH on Ubuntu:

> sudo restart ssh

ssh start/running, process 2654

You can use similar syntax to stop or start the process:

> sudo stop ssh

> sudo start ssh

And you can get status of the process by using the status keyword:

> sudo status ssh

[sudo] password for penguin:

ssh start/running, process 2711

That should be all you need to restart OpenSSH on Ubuntu. You can use a similar syntax to restart many other services. If you have another way to do this please comment and share!
