Just be careful at this step. The ssh session you currently have running
will stay alive when you restart ssh but, if the restart fails (due to a
config error or some such), you will be unable to ssh in again. If you
exit the current ssh session, you will be locked out. However, if you try
a second ssh session to test your config and it fails, you can back out
your changes in the first ssh session without losing your connection.
