Yes, I'm running RHEL 5.9 (Tikanga)
How will I know which is the custom version of openssh to re-install?
And do I have to download it from a website first and then upload it
to the server, or do I type in a command?
Check places like /usr/local or /opt, unless they installed the source packages, in which case they'll be under /root/rpmbuild. If it was a tarball install, then to rebuild is easy:
./configure (check to see if there's any switches you need to set) make make install
When I enter the command: yum install openssh or yum install
I get error messages either way saying :
" Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security

Oy, as they say, vey. Type yum clean all, then try again.
Did the yum clean all and got " Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security Cleaning up Everything"
So I afterwards I tried the ' yum install openssh ' and got the same error messages, so I tried the yum install openssh-server and also got the same error messages.
