look in /root/.ssh on your droplet, generate a new keypair with ssh-keygen and be sure copy the key to your machine. (It’s id_rsa not the one ending with .pub).

If you replace the public key on the droplet it doesn’t matter what happened to the old private key, though you should add the new public key to your keys list in the DO control panel so you can use it when you build droplets in future.

So i can login withouth using ssh or rsa keys just using putty
