Hi @davida9d0778e87de4a958cc11,

Glad to hear you are trying on this path and wanting to learn. I’ll recommend you to use your own terminal rather than the console provided from DigitalOcean for your droplet. It’s just much better.

Once you have your own terminal on your computer, you can ssh to your droplet like that

ssh roto@DropletIt

Then, your commands will work. If you however need some guidance and tutorials on how to work with them, I’ll recommend watching a few videos/courses about it. The best way to start is watching LPIC 1.


so the console does not work with line commands?
