SSH Root Login on Debian Server

Posted on by admin

To enable SSH login for a root user on Debian 8 Jessie, you need to configure the SSH server config.
Open /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change:
PermitRootLogin without-password
to:
PermitRootLogin yes
Save the configuration file and then restart the SSH server:
#service ssh restart
