I recently regenerated my public/private keys for SSH access to all of my droplets. I successfully updated the public key on all accounts except for one. I used the
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub command to display the public key in Terminal and copied it to the Settings > Security > SSH Keys section on my client’s account. After doing that, I tried to login using SSH via the Terminal, but Permission denied (publickey) is returned. I have reviewed many related issues on Stack Overflow and other tech help websites, but nothing has helped resolve my issue.
Can someone help me out with resolving this issue?
