However, recently the root usner name and password, when entered correctly or incorrectly, does not login. It gives me the message of Incorrect password or usnername. Why has this suddenly started occurring and how do I fix this?
Change the line containing "PermitRootLogin" to yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, and restart sshd on that machine.
It's better from the standpoint of security to always log in as a normal user and su (or run sudo), which is why root login via SSH is disabled by default. However, there are circumstances where logging in as root is convenient...
