    The problem I have: SSHD is down.
    I logged onto the WHM and tried to restart OpenSSH.

    Here's what I always get:

    Feb 1 05:28:50 seychelles sshd: sshd -TERM succeeded
    Feb 1 05:28:50 seychelles sshd: succeeded
    sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    I tried to reinstall openssh and openssh-server rpms, rebooted the server but nothing helped.. It still continues failing...
    Any suggestions?

    Please, help me if you know how to solve the problem...

    Go on, have a guess
    If you don't have access to the console you're going to have to ask your datacenter to resolve this for you (or use the file manager/console installation service that we offer).

    If you do have access to the console, you're going to need to check /var/log/messages when SSHD starts up to check for errors and/or run SSHD in debug mode to see where it's falling over.

    Did you, at some point, try and install openSSH or openSSL manually (i.e. from source)?
