`/var/empty/sshd/etc': No Such file or directory

Postby hrdedicated » Fri May 31, 2013 1:20 pm

Hello All,

You might get the "cp: cannot create regular file `/var/empty/sshd/etc': No Such file or directory" while starting the ssh service some time, to solve it you just need to create the directory with same path using below commands :

root@mylocalhost [~]# /etc/init.d/sshd start

cp: cannot create regular file `/var/empty/sshd/etc’: No such file or directory

This error is due to the missing folder /var/empty/sshd/etc.


To sort this you can use the following steps:

root@mylocalhost [~]# mkdir -p /var/empty/sshd/etc

root@mylocalhost [~]# chmod 755 /var/empty/sshd/etc

root@mylocalhost [~]# chown root.root /var/empty/sshd/etc

Now try restarting SSH.

root@mylocalhost [~]# /etc/init.d/sshd start

Starting sshd: [ OK ]

root@mylocalhost [~]#
