To enable root login via SSH on Fedora Linux using the Vim editor, you will need to perform the following steps:
- Open Terminal from Applications -> System Tools, or by pressing the CTRL + ALT + T keys
Use the command sudo su to switch to the root user.
Use the command to open the SSH configuration file.
Press the i key to enter into insert mode, locate the line that begins with PermitRootLogin and change the value from ‘no’ to ‘yes’.
Press Esc key then type :wq to leave the insert mode and save changes.
Use the command to restart the SSH service.
systemctl restart sshd
You should now be able to log in as the root user using SSH.
Note: It is not recommended to enable root login on Fedora or any other system, as it is a security risk. Instead, you should use a non-root user and use the sudo command to perform actions that require root privileges.
