Question

ssh keep asking for password

I recently installed fail2ban and since that I’m not able to log into my server using my ssh key. I can log in by using a password but I’d much prefer to use my ssh key to access the server.

Do I need to configure something on the fail2ban or is it something else that could be at fault for being asked a password?

Thanks

I figured it out, I had to re-add my keys with ssh-add (not sure what happened but it’s working now)
