Question

Cloud9 couldn't connect to SSH server

Hi, i’m using Cloud9 IDE and trying to create a workspace with Digital Ocean, i’ve followed every step on this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xld1JXd70aY but at about 1:25, after i’ve entered the hostname of the droplet and username as root, i click Create workspace and this error pops up:

Cloud9 couldn’t connect to SSH server root@xxx.xx.x.xx

The droplet i created is Ubuntu Ruby on Rails on 14.04, i’ve tried many things, made sure i added the SSH key to digital ocean, changed username to rails, changed port to 80, i can even access the droplet console and changed password as the email suggests etc but still no luck. What other things could be causing this error?

Probably got something wrong in the setup with the permissions. You can find and post more information at your ssh log
