Question About SSH Keys

Someone built my droplets using SSH keys. He never gave me access to my droplets before he walked off so I do not know how to login to them

I do not know anything about SSH keys

Can I change my passwords to just passwords and use them instead of SSH keys

Thanks, Diane

Tengo una duda y lo detallo:

Tengo dos cuentas de DO lo cual en una ya hice la instalación de mi wordpress y con su llave SSH creada todo funcionando OK.

Ahora quiero en la segunda cuenta de DO hacer el mismo proceso pero ¿debo usar la misma llave SSH? o cual sería el correcto proceso de hacerlo para esta nueva instalación.

Espero su ayuda.

Hi there @dianetemple824,

Yes, this is doable. In order to do so, you can follow the step by step instructions from the official documentation here:

On another note, if you wish to learn more about SSH keys, I would recommend going through this tutorial here:

Let me know if you have any other questions!
