I need to add a public key to the .ssh/authorized_keys file on my server, how do I do this as I already see an key in there and I need to add a second one?

Thanks,

Just add the new key on a new line in the same file.

Thanks. It was that simple.

I can paste anything into that shell. I am unable to ssh in from my terminal. When did this become such hassle?
