Question

How do I save multiple ssh keys each associated with separate digital ocean accounts?

Hi,

I’m new to Digital Ocean and SSH and ran into a problem when I tried to save a newly generated SSH key meant for business use on my computer. I already have one SSH key meant for personal use stored on my computer and when I tried saving the second SSH key into a separate file in the .ssh folder it wouldn’t do the job.

Any suggestions on how to overtake this?

Cheers!

hey, I don’t use windows but thanks anyway :)

If you read this tutorial carefully:

You’ll see that you can save separate user account details in Putty.

I create a directory for each user on my local drive and save the private key for the user in their directory.
