HI i am literally locked out. using centos 5.8 and all of a sudden i got this
"Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may be out of disk space. Try logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem"
i did Alt+Ctrl+F2 and tried logging though the terminal but there also it failed to log in. whenever i enter the password, i m prompted the user name and it is a vicious loop.
I tired all the session options on the log in screen, last session, fail-safe all in vain. i cannot afford to lose or re-install the server as i have tons of data and files on it.
all help will be highly regarded please.
further, until yesterday i was using Putty and ssh but now putty also exits the moment i enter my password. i do not have any users created except root.
