Activate or deactivate the SSH server
NOTE: The steps below are only valid for Bitnami OVA images for VMware vCenter on IBM Cloud.
Activate the SSH server
The SSH server is deactivated by default in Bitnami OVAs. However, some applications (like GitLab) require SSH access to import code repositories.
To activate the SSH server, execute the commands below at the server console:
$ sudo rm -f /etc/ssh/sshd_not_to_be_run $ sudo systemctl enable ssh $ sudo systemctl start ssh
Deactivate the SSH server
The SSH server is deactivated by default in the Bitnami OVAs. If you have activated it, you can deactivate it following the opposite steps:
$ sudo systemctl stop ssh $ sudo systemctl disable ssh
