Make sure everything is setup correctly on Droplet.

Bitbucket offers you to copy whole command and just execute it. Make sure you do it, so you don’t make typo anywhere.

Looking by Permission denied (publickey), you should have id_rsa and in Droplets /home/your-user/.ssh. That same publickey must be specified in Bitbucket settings. I think you need to copy manually using scp or rsync. First make sure you even have .ssh directory in your home folder on Droplet. Then exit SSH, and from your local machine use scp/rsync to copy keys:

  1. scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa your-user@droplet-ip:~/.ssh/
  2. scp ~/.ssh/ your-user@droplet-ip:~/.ssh/

Login again to the Droplet and try to clone again.

You can also use HTTPS link, as it doesn’t require you publickey. You should have on Bitbucket option to change between SSH and HTTPS link.
