    There's no way to get it back. You have to restore.

    That's why I never changed mine from alpine. I just turn off SSH with sbsettings.

    After every reboot ?

    Wouldn't it just be easier to write it down somewhere ?

    That's fine, as long as you remember that when you reboot, it gets turned on by default.

    SSH should come back on after a reboot. Just change your password and leave SSH on. It may come in very handy if you ever run into problems down the road.

    I just changed mine to a synonym for alpine. Very easy to remember because of the likeness.
