Do this if SSH stops working

Why I have to read this is an issue on a blog , rather than have someone report it here eludes me - but -

I install all the files to /tmp so as to NOT mess the root filesystem up. If, however, you want SSH to persist - copy the files from /tmp/usr/local/bin to /usr/local/bin, and the conf files of dropper to /etc/dropbear/. Then all you need to do is start dropbear again (killing the one running from tmp, or starting on another port). This way, you won't be affected by /tmp's regular cleanup (which wipes dropbear, and thus loses ssh connectivity).
