How do I disable the Message of the Day (MOTD) on Ubuntu 14.04?

I tried disabling the motd.dynamic in /var/run renaming the file, but did not work because the system recreates the file.

Does anyone know disable it?

Thank you.


The script files in /etc/update-motd.d generate the file /var/run/motd.dynamic which you've identified as containing your MOTD.

A simplistic way to stop generating this file would be to make all of the scripts non-executable with:

chmod -x /etc/update-motd.d/*
