Can't ssh to my droplet (Ubuntu 16.04.1), Permission denied (publickey) !?
When I try to ssh to my server this happens:
The authenticity of host ‘xx.xxx.xx.xxx (xx.xxx.xx.xxx)’ can’t be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is xx.xxx.xx.xxxxx.xxx.xx.xxxxx.xxx.xx.xxxxx.xxx.xx.xxxxx.xxx.xx.xxx.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'xx.xxx.xx.xxx’ (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).
I managed to put the same ssh key on my local machine and on my droplet and this happens every time. I tried to google the problem but didn’t find any solution :/
