How to disable SSH login for the root user on Linux? [Music no 10]

I had a problem that sometimes somebody hacked my password to my Linux server and run some programs on my Linux server. Every time when I decided to rebuild my Linux distribution on the server and change password to more crazy after a few months this happened
again – somebody hacked access to my Linux.

I digged a little bit and quickly I found the solution. I just turn off an option to be able to login as root user
Go to file: /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Find a line with text: #PermitRootLogin yes
Change it to: PermitRootLogin no
Confirm with: sudo service ssh restart

Confirm with
Save and done.
