How to enable a port after port violation


It may sound dumb but I'm still pretty new and after searching for some time I'm still clueless. I'm referring to Cisco switches in general. I know that we can set port security but what happens when the port is shutdown due to the violation.

How do I reactivate the port back and is there more than one way to do so?
