i rented a virtual machine with ubuntu server. I logged in via the ssh-command in the terminal from my ubuntu home pc. Before i exited, i accidentally typed "stop ssh" in the terminal, because i thought it would end my ssh-session with the server. At the end "exit" did it - now i cant connect anymore to the server using "ssh user@host" with the error message:
ssh: connect to host HOSTNAME port 22: Connection refused
I think i shut down the ssh-module in the server. As an alternative connection way, i already tried the "sftp user@host" command, but in the end this command also tries to ssh to the server. As i rented this virtual machine, i don't have direct access to the servers file structure to change a configuration file or something like that. Is there any other way except ssh to connect to the server?
Thanks in advance
