Basically, for some reason the copy paste does not work between my local machine where I created the key pair and pasting into console into the authorized_keys file. It won’t recognize the correct case of the paste. Really odd.
I need to do this because my pass phrase for the existing key does not work. I am 99% sure that its the original , correct passphrase.
I would like to avoid creating a whole new droplet.
