Connecting to Droplet via FileZilla
I have never had this much trouble connect to a website…I confess I’m a newbie to DO - their support has been rather “catty” in offering assistance…but here’s the details of my adventure:
I’ve created my keys per these instructions - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-ssh-keys-with-digitalocean-droplets
I’ve set up FileZilla according to the instructions here - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-filezilla-to-transfer-and-manage-files-securely-on-your-vps
09:49:22 Status: Connecting to 18.104.22.168…
09:49:22 Response: fzSftp started, protocolversion=8
09:49:22 Command: keyfile “/Users/Donna/.ssh/idrsa”
09:49:22 Command: open “firstname.lastname@example.org” 22
09:49:23 Error: Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)
09:49:23 Error: Could not connect to server
After many attempts to add my public key to an existing droplet - via my Terminal when I try command - ssh email@example.com
I keep getting:
Permission denied (publickey)
I’ve added my public key via DO Console to the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. I’ve restarted the server using “sudo service ssh restart”
Any support would so be appreciated!
