Powered off my VPS, now can't SSH in
I powered off my droplet from the command line to do a snapshot. After powering back up I can’t ssh in. PuTTY gives me a “Server refused our key” error and prompts for password of the root user (providing the password doesn’t get me in either, it says “Access denied”). Any idea what’s happened?
