    after entering into this file i have made this change
    PermitRootLogin no
    but have not done this change.....
    AllowUsers YOUR-USER because this option was not there but i have not saved this file (/etc/ssh/sshd_config)

    after this i am not able to make root login from su as well.
    Plz suggest me what to do now
