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.
