10 You could stop the sshd process manually with kill or similar (I use
11 htop). (Careful though, you don't want to kill your current session,
12 just the daemon listening for new connections!) Then you can "zap" the
13 service and start it as normal.
15 Or you could reboot the host, and (assuming it's in your default
16 run-level) sshd will start on boot.
