Hi @floridiverse,

I would assume the issue is behind you not having an SSH key on your Filezilla instance. As mentioned check the tutorial here:

But basically, you’ll need to create an SSH key on your Laptop, if you don’t have one already, added to your FileZilla and then add the SSH key to your Droplet.
