I have an SFTP server that runs on Amazon Linux 2 on AWS.
The current SSH version is OpenSSH_7.4p1, is it possible to safely upgrade this to version 7.8. If yes how can I get it done.
Since the SFTP server is already a production environment and has many users and applications connecting to it, I am worried if this upgrade might break anything.
I need to upgrade due to a limitation in the current version.
I was able to upgrade to the required version. But, my service file seems to not start the sshd service. It instead displays "sshd.service start operation timed out. Terminating." However, the new ssh service starts and works when i manually execute /usr/sbin/sshd in the terminal.
Can some one please help me at this point. Any hints here ?
