Enable Root Login over SSH

Root access will often be disabled by default in most operating system basic installs. To enable it, you must edit the SSH config.

nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

You must then find the following line and remove the # before it

#PermitRootLogin yes

You can then save and exit by pressing ctrl + o and then ctrl + x

service sshd restart
