Issues connecting via ssh to VPS

Recently, after an update of an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS VPS, we got the following connection issue:


nc: connectx to IPADDRESS port PORT (tcp) failed: Connection refused

The following command yields more information:

sshd -t

"Missing priviledge separation directory: /var/run/sshd"

The fix in this case was easy enough:

mkdir /var/run/sshd

sshd -t

(no issues reported)

service sshd restart

all good!
