when I enter ssh asks me to change the password but nose as change please help

  • Sorry, but I don't understand the question... :/
    You try to login to your droplet via ssh ? Then it prompts for password change?

  • If you're just trying to log into your droplet for the first time as root, you HAVE to change the password to something else.

The only time your Droplet will ask you to change your password when logging in via SSH is the first time you log in as root. This is a security measure since your root password was sent via email. SSH keys are not involved with that process at all. You'll need to set up SSH key authentication manually.
