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 firstname.lastname@example.org The authenticity of host '22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:QaJBHcKBwzqiHbXeNsuTS07h7m4COyU6SyVrpCG6upE. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added '188.8.131.52' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. email@example.com's password:
If the instructions are wrong please correct them.
