I use filezilla (tried a few different clients) to FTP into my digitalocean droplet with a public key. I have been doing this with success for years.
Seemingly overnight (although there was a FileZilla product update in there), this connection stopped working. I now get an error in FileZilla:
Status: Server refused public-key signature despite accepting key!
I’m not really sure what this means. I’m able to SSH into the server directly using a tool like git bash. In /var/log/auth, there’s not really anything of any use either.
Unsure where to even start, google hasn’t been super helpful.
The droplet is running ubuntu 20.04
