Question

After disabling root login, make sure you can SSH to your Droplet as the deploy user and use sudo

Hi there

Warning: After disabling root login, make sure you can SSH to your Droplet as the deploy user and use sudo for this user before closing the root SSH session you opened to make these changes."

am not only new but also a newbie; Now I missed this warning! Have finished setup before I saw it. “Deploying rails on ubuntu 10.04 with capistrano, Nginx, and puma” is the way I want to go with my droplet. So has anyone got a way around this warning? My supperuser is not “deploy”. I made another superuser, “deploy” but can’t log in with it; also can’t ssh to droplet with it. Help will be appreciated!
