my_secure_key in mongo tutorial

Posted July 30, 2013 4.4k views
I'm following this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-securely-configure-a-production-mongodb-server for creating a secure connection to a Mongo database When I ran these commands `# The \s are just to multiline the command and make it more readable ssh \ -L 4321:localhost:27017 \ -i ~/.ssh/my_secure_key \ ssh_user@mongo_db_droplet_host_or_ip` it told me that, regarding this line -i ~/.ssh/my_secure_key \, my_secure_key is not accessible. No such file or directory. Am I supposed to replace 'my_secure_key' with a key that I get from somewhere? Thanks for your help

By default, it's supposed to be ~/.ssh/id_rsa
If that doesn't work, please paste the output of "ls ~/.ssh"
