Hello, @khairpharma01

I will recommend you to check this tutorial on how to add your ssh key to your droplet:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-ssh-keys–2

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/add-ssh-keys/to-existing-droplet/

Also please make sure that you’re trying to connect as the root username.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,
Alex

SSH keys provide a more secure way of logging into a virtual private server with SSH than using a password alone. With SSH keys, users can log into a server without a password. This tutorial explains how to generate, use, and upload an SSH Key Pair.
