Ubuntu 18.04, Virtual Server at Hosting. Attempting SSH Putty connection on Port 22 is causing a timeout. Port is closed. Over the Hosting Service admin panel I can put the Server into 'Repair' mode and can connect to SSH Port 22 via Putty fine.
The filesystem of the 'normal' server is in the /repair/ folder when connected in Repair mode.
Hosting Service provider tells me that I need to issue commands that open port 22 on the /repair/ instance. I am not sure how to do that.
All actions that I do effect the 'Repair' instance and not the 'Normal' Server for example
sudo ufw allow ssh
works on the 'Repair' instance and port 22 is closed again when I reboot in 'Normal' mode from the management interface
How I can I open port 22 for SSH from the Repair instance ? Can it be done with editing text/config files ?
If so can someone provide detailed instructions please
The filesystem of the Repair instance:
root@h2861449:/# ls bin dev home lib64 media opt repair run srv tmp var boot etc lib lost+found mnt proc root
sbin sys usr
The filesystem of /repair/
root@h2861449:/repair# ls aquota.group bin dev home lib64
media opt proc run srv tmp var aquota.user boot etc lib lost+found mnt private-backup root sbin sys usr
thank you kindly
