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)
