Can I regrain access to my server without resetting current keys and settings?
I have a SSH key login to my droplet on my laptop(Ubuntu 18.04), which unexpectedly went to repair yesterday. I am hoping it will be fixed next week and my question is: can I access my droplet through something else meanwhile? I can log into the web console easily on my other laptop(windows 10), but I would like to use FileZilla or something else to access it. Is it possible to log into my droplet without changing my existing key, or can I add multiple ones? Maybe copying it from digital ocean somehow or console? I’m scared I will mess with the current configuration and I would want to avoid that.
Any help greatly appreciated.
