centos 7 sshd service not found?

Yesterday i installed php,apache,mariaDB all using ssh(putty). Today when i woke up and tried to log-in with putty it said connection established. So i looked it up on the internet. i saw some commands like service sshd restart

And that gave me this error: Failed to issue methode call: Unit sshd.service failed to load: No such file or directory

So it looks like my ssh is just gone? how can i fix this?

often occur when editing /etc /ssh /sshd_config

This solution did not work for me. Please update with the $ “/bin/systemctl restart sshd” cmd. The RootPassword login no option then worked when doing Step Five — Configure SSH Daemon in Initial Server Setup with CentOS 7.

Hello SynteX, This isn’t a big problem and could probably be fixed simply. If you run

systemctl status sshd.service

It will probably give an output that its disabled. To get this enabled use:

systemctl enable sshd.service


systemctl start sshd.service

And then check if its running now:

systemctl status sshd.service 

The output should tell you its enabled. If everything goes well you should have ssh services every time you boot from now on.
