Keep having to log into WHM to access SSH

    So for the last few months, every time I try to access SSH I get a refused connection error.

    If I then log into WHM and restart SSH service I can then log in. I just tried it again and it fixed it by me just logging into WHM.

    Any advice on how to prevent WHM from blocking SSH?

    Please remember the facts I just presented - I did not alter the firewall or anything. I just logged into WHM and it started working.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Do you notice any output to the /var/log/secure log file when the SSH connection is refused?

    Thank you.
