Lost old SSH key for droplets. How do I add my new key?
My old hard drive failed, and I didn’t have a backup. I had to replace the HDD. I have now lost my old SSH key.
I need to add my new SSH key to my 2 droplets. These droplets have been live for over 6 months.
Is it possible?
Please do not suggest adding an SSH key that requires logging into the server. That’s impossible, as I don’t have my old SSH key.
What options do I have?
