Followed instructions. Setup SSH keys but server still prompts for password
I followed these instructions: (more than once! I have repeated the process VERY carefully several times)
However, I get to step 5:
“However, now when you connect from a machine that shares the key pair, there will be no need to enter a password to log into the root user.”
THIS IS NOT TRUE:
~ $ssh email@example.com The authenticity of host '18.104.22.168 (22.214.171.124)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:QaJBHcKBwzqiHbXeNsuTS07h7m4COyU6SyVrpCG6upE. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added '126.96.36.199' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. firstname.lastname@example.org's password:
If the instructions are wrong please correct them.
