SSH is disabled for users ("this service allows sftp connections only")

Why on earth has someone decided we no longer need SSH login to our users and how can I fix it? The access is only needed to the user’s own folder.

Thanx, my lesson here is never reinstall servers at night (it makes me forget even the most basic things)
