I have added my public key in the settings/security section, and created a droplet with that key selected. I am trying to "ssh {serveripaddress}" but I still get the prompt for the password.

this is the output of ssh {serveripaddress} -v

Hello,

By default, we only set up the "root" username with SSH keys. Are you logging in as "root" or a different, custom user?

I've the same problem.
How can I the www-data user or another user to clone repositories?
