Damn, I tried to upgrade FreeBSD remotly on one web server I admin and I've managed to broke authorization in ssh. It is still up but I cannot login. Neither using my key nor using my password. The only way I can login on server is FTP. What can I do with it? Should I try to edit my crontab to start something I can use as remote shell? Or should I try to put CGI - shell simulator?
This accident leads me to idea that I should turn on telnet service during upgrades as backup remote shell service. Were I did it telnet could save my ass.
