    Hello

    I have very less experience with servers and this is my first time connecting to ssh via my mac terminal.

    when I enter a command on terminal to connect to ssh, It shows me follwing error

    ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22: Connection refused

    I read some articles on internet but found no solution.

    Thanks

    Hello :),

    Do you have root access of your server ? If yes, then try to restart SSHD services through WHM and allow your IP in server firewall.

    Hello,

    Your access level is listed as "Reseller Owner". I recommend contacting your hosting provider to verify if SSH access is enabled on your account.

    Thank you.
