I followed the SSH Keys tutorial here at DO but the server still prompts for my user password (not passphrase) when I login. I checked ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and there is only 1 line so it looks like the key copied over OK. I am asked for my user password when I use either the HTML 5 console access program or PuTTY. I am not logging in as root, but the user account has root privileges.
I’m new to SSH so I apologize for not being able to explain the issue too well. I’m using Ubuntu 12.04 (server edition, no desktop).
