Easy way:
Connect to VNC (droplets>your droplet>Access>button “Launch Console”)
Authenticate with your login and pass.
Open ssh config (vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config)
Insert this string “PasswordAuthentication yes ”
Save config.
Reboot ssh (service ssh restart)
Try connect from your local machine.
Optionally add ssh-keys.
