Questions regarding the technical specifics of adding SSH on creation.
When I create a droplet and add SSH keys during creation, does that assign that ssh key to root, or does it create a new user named whatever I made the ssh’s name?
If the former:
What happens if I select two or more ssh keys on creation? Does it randomly pick one to assign to root and create a new user for the other?
If the latter,
How do I connect to root?
What access privileges does that new user get created with?
What happens if I make the ssh key’s name “root”?
