I tried following along with this article “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-ssh-keys-with-putty-to-connect-to-a-vps” and this article “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-12-04” to set up ssh with my already existing droplet. Every time I go to putty to ssh in, I get a “server refused our key” message and then I am asked to enter in my password. I must be doing something wrong or have the wrong configuration but I’m not sure what it is. I have re-read both articles many times in order to figure out where I am (possibly) missing something.
