Hi guys, how do you copy your SSH Key from the console? I can't select it. I'm on Ubuntu - and on a Mac. Any ideas? Cheers.

  • The web console does not support copy/paste. It is intended for limited access and recovery should your droplet be otherwise unavailable. We strongly recommend using SSH for administering your droplets.

  • are you trying to copy your mac's keys to your ubuntu VPS, or the other way around?

  • Hi guys, thanks for the replies. I was trying to copy the keys from the online console. Ryanpq was absolutely correct, just connecting via SSH using Terminal allowed copy/paste. Appreciated.

  • sendmail <your_email_id> < <ssh_key_file>
