Question

I can't type on Console

Hello everyone!

I just applied ssh keys on my droplet and I checked if everything worked ok. It did! After that, I changed the “PermitRootLogin” to “no” instead of “without-password”, without having another user! Stupid, I know…

I tried searching it here and found out, I can access my root user via the Console! When I got there, I started typing the “root” username and gibberish came out: http://prntscr.com/dt2nna

Can someone please help me?
PS: I’ve tried it on Safari and Chrome

I finally solved it! I had to press the “F12” key, I think… After that, I could type normally!
