Question

How do I remove the WordPress instructions on ssh login?

Posted October 6, 2014 1.8k views

When I log into my Ubuntu droplet by SSH, I’m greeted with system information and a big block of text about how to access my WordPress install.

How do I remove that text, since it shows the login information? I had a look for MOTD stuff, but nothing seems to be used there.

I’ve seen conflicting info about this, but looks like it should be stored in one of these places:

/etc/update-motd.d

Or

/etc/motd

You can always grep for the text to try to narrow it down:

grep -Rl "To finish installing WordPress" /etc
