I've run into an issue where I've had reliable ssh access for months and suddenly:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/[username]: No such file or directory
Then the connection drops.
I have not changed anything in many months, occasionally I ssh in to wget something.
The last time I connected (2 weeks ago via PuTTY) it was on a device I rarely use, I don't recall if I closed the session gracefully.
There have been several power outages since that connection.
Any chance my username is locked up due to a bad disconnect?
I have been able to create many simultaneous connections with the same username in the past, so that seems an unlikely culprit.
This is my main method for accessing the server, so I'll have to fight with forgotten passwords, dragging out a monitor/keyboard, etc.
Simple fix anyone?
