How do I use PuTTY to log in to a non-root user on Ubuntu 16.04?
I’ve followed the tutorial on setting up my droplet and installed a SSH key while creating my droplet. Since I’m using Windows, I have been using PuTTY to connect to my server; but I always log in as the root user and not the non-root sudo user I created. How do I create a profile on PuTTY that uses my sudo user instead?
