Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Resetting ssh password
For some reason, ssh will not allow me to log in on my server box using the username/password combination for the main login on the box.

I can't pinpoint an event that would have caused this to happen, it used to work fine.

So, is there a way to reset the ssh passwords...not critical, as I don't go to the office much...but I do like to have access to the box when I'm away...and right now I don't.

New Re: What kind of parse errors?
Sep 9 23:37:40 localhost PAM-env[13968]: pam_parse: unknown option; read_env=1

However, it doesn't seem to be logging failures...just tried again and no log entries were made.

Going to check the config again.

New Found something...
[link|http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=396696|Ooops a typo]

Find
read_env in /etc/

as root or equivalent:

cd /etc
grep -r read_env *

And go through the list.

Fix the pam related one from "read_env" to be "readenv"

New here is what I get from my machine:
After doing: grep -r readenv *

Remember its probably going to be one of the same lines. But yours will have read_env

New Using Debian or Ubuntu on the machine?
Because, recently Debian had a PAM UPGRADE (with extended additional functionality) on testing(Lenny and of course SID before that) that forces any service that uses PAM to completely restart. Nothing works, unless you restart the service(s) affected.

With that said, the Debian upgrade should have notified you that "XXX XXX XXX" services need the restart.

It may not have included your needed service.

A reboot SHOULD definitely take care of this (being the big hammer it is)

Ubuntu also had a recent similar issue, but was more of an ABI bump, that was unavoidable to take care of an local exploit.
