How to Enable Login With Password on Linux

Let’s update the Password Authentication parameter in the ssh service config file:

1vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Hey, what? You can't even find the sshd service?
Install it then:

1sudo apt update
2sudo apt install openssh-server

In the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, uncomment this line:

1#PasswordAuthentication yes

Boom! Done.

Oops! Don’t forget to reboot! 🙂
Or just run:

1sudo systemctl restart sshd

Happy networking!
