    It sounds like you locked yourself out.

    So you might need to get a local console on that machine to revert the changes.

    i did wonder this, but wasnt sure if there something else i could do like a backdoor to gain entry and fix the problem i made as im not near the server at the moment. if not i will have two wait until im back home in a few days to fix it then.

    Not to be mean,
    but I wouldnt use opensshd, if it had such a backdoor

    Maybe this machine features (and is already configured to use) some out-of-band management?
