I enter my public ssh key in the pre-Droplet setup, but no acct is created for it. How to log in initially?
$ ssh <IP>
ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:…
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])? yes
mylocalname@<IP>: Permission denied (publickey).
I.e. I’d think from the SSH key entry description that the Droplet created would be set up with an acct in the username of the public key and having sudo, or at least that there’d be a step-by-step guide in a more obvious place.
