Idiots guide to enabling root on 6.2

Question

Yo,

 

has anyone got an idiots guide to enabling root on 6.2?
I use winSCP to transfer files but can't do it any more since directories are locked down.

 

i found a guide on YouTube


however on my etc/ssh/sshd_config, PermitRootLogin is set to prohibit-password.
Making the changes in the questions just makes the ssh service stop and won't come back up.

Thanks

@mgrobins from the link you posted: "but be warned I still can't get winSCP to work." 

Did you get WinSCP to work? (as that's what elmuziko wanted).

I'd still take a permanent fix to this any day of the week but getting around it for the time being using those steps albeit from the Synology site, to chmod wherever it is I'm going to, using winSCP as a standard user, then chmod back to what it was previously.

It's not clean, nor is it straight forward, but it is a work around. Again, if someone has a more permanent fix I'd take it any day of the week.

Thanks
