Problems with logging into droplet
I have a few problems with my droplet, that basically make it impossible for me to log in.
First I wanted to connect with putty from new machine, I changed public/private keys on digitalocean, made them with putty key generator.
When I try to connect via putty to droplet, I got error that server refused my key, I tried few times with new key pairs but still the same error.
I tried to log in from droplet console, it isn’t working as well, it says: “all configured authentication methods failed”, tried with recovery console, got connected but I forgot my root password so I reseted it and used password in email to make a new one, but I can’t log in with new one (tried twice as well).
