Configuring ubuntu 17.04 x64 droplet to work with FTP

Posted August 11, 2017 2.1k views

Hi, I’ve tried and failed many times to configure my droplet to work with FTP access. I’ve also tried setting up the droplet with SSH access, but managed to fail that too with a “Permission Denied (publickey)” error every time. A walkthrough which explains the process like I’m 5 years old would be greatly appreciated. I’m about to give up on it, having gone through most tutorials and videos on the internet and either messing up or getting lost. Cheers.
