My ACCESS CONSOLE won't let me login to my root after setting up SSH Keys.


My ACCESS CONSOLE won’t let me login to my root after setting up SSH Keys. All I get is an error saying Incorrect Login. What does Private-MAC: mean at the bottom of my Private Key?

Can someone take me by the hand (maybe SKYPE) and lead me to my first WordPress blog? I want to learn how to do this some time this century. All I need is one trip around the block and I can take it from there.

Operating System: Windows 10 Professional (Desktop) HELP!

Sincerely, Joe
