Can't ssh to a new droplet!
I created a new droplet (A Ghost droplet), set up a new ssh key on my laptop, added the key to DO and set it as in use for this droplet prior to creation.
Can’t ssh in. Permission denied, no matter what I tweak in .ssh/config or on the command line. Trying to ssh as
So - reset the password, got the password via mail, went to recovery terminal and still couldn’t log in with user:root, pw: the one I got mailed.
What’s going on here? I’m about 10 minutes from heading over to linode tbh. As I recall DO was really smooth when I was trying it out previously. This is just a pain though.
(All permissions are OK btw … .ssh dir = 700, files in there = 600)
BTW, if it’s relevant, I’ve not associated this with a domain yet as I’m migrating a blog from the ghost.io platform, so want the new one up and running first before I repoint the domain!
