    Can you SSH to the server? If not, is telnet enabled?

    Login to your whm and select the 'install rpm' link

    Check the force install option and reinstall the openssh rpms, hopefully that will get you back running.

    Did you modify the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file per chance?

    What led to ssh failing ?

    i would have to say you need physical access to the box or have the datacenter look at it.

    Go on, have a guess
    Or if that isn't an option, I can probably get you back up and running using some expect scripts Feel free to PM me.
