    This is a major emergency and there must me some way to fix it.

    Somehow I accidentally addedd deny all IP to my host access control, so i can't login into whm, and i can't ssh as root because direct root login is not permitted. I still have one account logged in but it doesn't have root access. I have complete control over the vps in any other sense but I don't know how to fix this.

    I cant even create a support ticket because of this :(

    Your Hosting Provider should be able to assist you with this.

    As it is an unmanaged VPS I doubt they will offer me any help. I need one of two things to happen. Turn permit direct root login back on or remove that deny all from host access control.

    The server rebooted while I was adding roots ssh keys. God, why?

    If you've lost access to your server, and it sounds like you have, your Hosting Provider can assist you with this. For example:

    Thank you infopro, not sure that will help me though. I will suggest it to them, and I appreciate your input. The server boots fine, and I can access it (for now until my ip changes) via ssh as a user. The problem is the user does not have su privs. I can reboot the server via the interface on the hosting company, but there are no boot options. Just reboot.

    You shouldn't have to explain that link to them, they should already know the procedure. That's how you're going to get back in. But you need their help, no question about it.

    GL!

    There is a god. I thank you all for listening to my problem. I didn't expect them to help me, but they did. They reverted the change to host access control. Wow. Most of my clients would be logging into their apps and checking their email in about 30 minutes. Wow. I was about to change my name and flee the country.

    Phew.
