Permission Denied (PublicKey)
Hey there. For starters, I am a total noob to server set up. What I need to do is set up SSH log in to my VPS. For reference, I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and I used PuttyGen to make my key.
I connected my public key with my DigitalOcean account, and so my new server was made with an SSH included. I have two questions: What are the details that I would need to send someone to allow them to log into my server with SSH?
And finally, whenever I try to log into my server with SSH from a console, by doing a command like: ssh MYIPADDRESS, it says PublicKey Denied. I am able to connect with my private key no problem, but I know that i should not share that and so I must find otherways to connect. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
So basically, I can connect with Putty using private key, but cannot connect any other way!
