    For some reason when I login to my SSH it displays a different name at the command prompt. Any ideas why or what would make this change?

    It use to be:
    root@hosting#

    Now it is:
    -bash-2.05b#

    Anyone got any ideas? I can't figure it out..

    Found out its some sort of upgrade to SSH... I just dont know how it got upgraded LOL .. Maybe when I upgraded Zend? Who knows...

    If its jailshell how could the root account get jailed? And if it is, how can I change it back?

    Check the PS1 value in your /etc/profile and/or ~/.bashrc files

    PS1="\u@\h # "

    Should give you what you said you had before.
