hello, I have created the 2nd droplet, but I can't get SSH keypair from DigitalOcean

Hello, everyone recently I’m doing my learing. When I created first droplet in DigitalOcean, I got SSH keypair from DigitalOcean from e-mail. But I didn’t get the second SSH keypair when creating the 2nd droplet! Should I create ssh keypair on my 2nd droplet(centOS7) or wait for their e-mail to ssh it ?

Heya @hidingdarkblueangler,

You should create the SSH key on your second Droplet manually.

Once you have the keys you need to do the following

To make sure you can access Droplet 1 with SSH from Droplet 2, on Droplet 1 add the public SSH key of Droplet 2 to the /.ssh/authorized_keys file.

To make sure you can access Droplet 2 using SSH from Droplet 1, then you’ll need to add the SSH public key of Droplet 1 to the /.ssh/authorized_keys file of Droplet 2
