Question

Need my SSH key to upload files using Transmit to my droplet

I have a new laptop now and I don’t have access to the SSH key that I generated when I created the droplet for my website. Now, I have updated my website and I need to upload the updated files by connecting via SFTP using Transmit to my droplet, but I can’t connect because I do not have the key on my new laptop. Can anyone help me? THanks

Hello,

What you would need to do in this case is to follow the steps here on how to recover access to your Droplet:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/resources/lost-ssh-key/

Once you’ve uploaded the new SSH key, you will be able to connect to the Droplet as normal.

Hope that this helps!

Regards,

Bobby
