I setup an ARK dedicated server using the following guides
After rebooting the server I was no longer able to SSH in. I kept getting prompted with invalid credentials
So I undid the changes outlined below using the hetzner rescue system
First edit the file /etc/sysctl.conf and change or add the following line:
Next you need to edit the file /etc/security/limits.conf and set the limits to the same value you used in the previous step. Change or add the following lines as necessary:
- soft nofile 100000
- hard nofile 100000
I also attempted to change the password for the primary user while logged in to the rescue system. The password seems to have change successfully but I’m still able to log in to the quickbox dashboard using the old password. Also unable to access quickbox web console .
Any help is appreciated as always.
