SSH login into EC2 using root user

0

I'm trying to login into my EC2 instance using root as user (no problem using ec2-user) !
I already updated my sshd_config file and enabled ability to login as root
I also removed the lines needed from .ssh/authorized_keys

When try to login I get the following error: Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).
