I recently added a second public key to the .ssh/authorizedkeys file (, but while to login to the server with SSH works, it doesn’t work for SFTP with the second public key that I installed.

Am I missing something?

I am having this same issue using FileZilla SFTP - I’ve followed the instruction for setting up my key, adding a key to an existing droplet and some fixes suggested along the way. Would love some support to get connected to the site.
