Can you confirm if you have followed the steps on how to connect to your server via SSH with putty here:

If you have followed the steps but you are still getting the error, check your permissions and ensure that the ~/.ssh folder is set to 0700 and the authorized_key file in that folder is set to 0600 on your droplet.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
