HOW do I add a ssh key from a NEW laptop to an existing droplet. I’ve added via the admin panel my ssh public key and when restarting the droplet it’s not added. I’ve tried “ssh root@myip” and typing in the root password I set, I get permission denied. I’ve tried resetting the droplet password and “ssh root@myip” withthe newly sent password, I stil get permission denied. The console via the do website can get me logged in but it lacks copy paste so I cannot paste in the ssh key via that.
Running Ubuntu 14.04 both droplet and my computer.
HOW do I get my ssh key into the droplet?
