DigitalOcean can add your SSH key into your droplet at creation time only. You’ll need to add your public key to the file ~/.ssh/authorized_keys in your droplet. If you can’t get in because you don’t remember your droplet password or lost the previous key, you’ll need to boot into recovery mode and then add the key.
