SSHD has failed

If you have changed the SSH default Port 22 on a cPanel server , restarting sshd from the WHM will give you following message “sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin” as by default WHM/cPanel will check the SSHD service on default port 22 .

But if you forgot the SSH port for your server then you will need to login to the server via KVM and then you will be able to check the SSH port for your server
or else  temporarily, reset your SSH port back to 22 via WHM, run the following command from the Address field in browser:

SERVER_MAIN_IP:2087/scripts2/doautofixer?autofix=safesshrestart
