After install LAMP via Tasksel I cannot log in anymore via SSH: connection refused. I'm sure that install LAMP this way causes this problem. I had this once before.

I'm still connected via SSH, so I'm able to fix it now. How can I fix SSH?

Sorry, maybe I was a bit to fast with posting a question. But I was in panic ;) Installing openSSH via Tasksel fixed my problem.

Filled in bug report on Launchpad

Please clarify. Was OpenSSH-server not already installed, or had Tasksel removed it, or something else? – david6 Jan 13 '13 at 20:30
openSSH was installed before installing LAMP. I made a bug rapport on launchpad. – OrangeTux Jan 13 '13 at 20:57
Add link, to LaunchPad (bug report). – david6 Jan 13 '13 at 21:06
Tasksel is still a dangerous beast - never use it to uninstall something - it will remove every package it would have installed for that task! – guntbert Jan 13 '13 at 21:10
@david6 done it. – OrangeTux Jan 13 '13 at 22:30
