Permission denied, please try again when logging into droplet with ssh key

May 6, 2014 6.3k views
I followed the tutorial here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-ssh-keys--2 I generated ssh public key on my home pc. I added it to the ssh keys in dashboard. I create a droplet with the ssh key. I try to ssh to the droplet it automatically tries to login as PC@ I enter password and it says permission denied, please try again. I have no way of sshing into the droplet. I am stuck.

is PC@xxx.xxx..xx.x.xx. a real user? try typing root@xxx.xx.xx.xx.
Also If you cant log in you can try going to your DO control pannle and loging in with the kernal thing or reseting the root password
