How to clone Github Django project to my droplet ?

I have followed the Django droplet creation steps and create a droplet successfully. Now, I want to put my Django project, that is on Github, live instead of that dummy project that is created on my droplet. I don’t know how to do it. Can anyone guide me how to do this ?

Accepted Answer
  1. ssh to your droplet

  2. connect ssh to github

```ls -la``

[before] root root .ssh Here .ssh is under the root so as the user (let’s say user1) you don’t have Permission

run sudo chown -R user1:user1 /home/user1

chown is change owner -R is recursive change anything in home user1 change everything in /home/user1 to user1:user1

```ls -la``

[after] user1 user1 .ssh

check github of how on create a ssh key

cat .ssh/

copy and past to github

ssh-add /home/uers1/.ssh/id_rsa_github

If you got Could not open a connection to your authentication agent run

eval `ssh-agent -s` => to activate the ssh agent


sudo chmod 400 id_rsa_github


git clone
