I just created my first droplet, do I need to generate an SSH key?

  • Posted June 28, 2013

I created my first droplet and I successfully logged in as root using the terminal from the email DO sent me.

Do I still need to generate a new key or was it created automatically upon installation?

We’ve recently deployed a fix - if you have been able to successfully ssh in there’s no need to generate new ssh host keys. :]
