Adding new SSH Key to Exisiting Droplet

Hey Guys,

I recently did a fresh OS install on my local machine and forgot to backup my SSH Keys. I generated a new SSH Key on my now “NEW” machine and copied the public ssh_key to /Home/USER/.ssh/authorized_keys however I am still unable to SSH into the Server, The connection continues to time out… Has anyone had any similar problems?

Thank you in advance.
