PasswordAuthentication resets to 'No' after creating a droplet from a snapshot that has this value as 'yes'
I’ve a snapshot that I have created from a droplet that has ssh key but I also want to be able to access it with a password so I set PasswordAuthentication to yes (inside /etc/ssh/sshd_config) and restarted ssh service (service sshd restart) before saving the snapshot.
Now when I create other droplets using this snapshot and specify ssh key and then try to login with password I can not and when I logged in with ssh key to see whats wrong I noticed PasswordAuthentication was set back to ‘no’!!
how can I force it to stay on the value I specified which was 'yes’ ?
