Console Login ERROR

Hello,

I was able to login to open my console from my dashboard and I could very well access my terminal. However, it tells me that I need to login to be able to use it.

How do I login to the terminal to continue the usage?

Thanks!

Hello @oogunya

You can follow this tutorial in order to access your droplet using the console - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-console-to-access-your-droplet

You will usually use the console if you can’t access your droplet using ssh via an ssh client and it’s usually the last resort option when it comes to troubleshooting.

You can also check our docs on How to Connect to Droplets with SSH:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/connect-with-ssh/

There are two options at the bottom of the doc:
Connect with OpenSSH
and
Connect with PuTTY

Hope that this helps!
Regards,
Alex
