My droplet suddenly stopped allowing me to login in any way, except console.
My main droplet is hosting a few websites.
But today, suddenly (perhaps when I ran this command: “sudo update-rc.d nginx enable”) it stopped allowing me to login thru FTP or thru Bash/Terminal altogether. (FTP gives error: “server refused our key” even though I was logging in for a long time, and didn’t change any keys etc).
Now I’m only able to login thru Console.
And the same password, which I’m using in console, isn’t working in bash terminal login.
Kindly help me, I’m comparatively new and my very imp websites are running on this droplet.
I know all about ssh keys, their security permissions, WinScp etc.
I’ve even checked my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, and its all ok.
What can I do now so that it let me login normal way.
Pls pls help.
