I have several droplets active with which I can log in via ssh perfectly fine. However, when I create a new droplet with enabled ssh keys, I cannot log in after the droplet is created which makes it quite difficult to get work done.
I’ve tried on both generic Ubuntu installations and the 1-click Docker installation which I was hoping to use. I’ve gone through DO’s ssh debugging protocol and nothing seems to pop up. What’s going on and how can I access the server without needing to disable ssh keys and log in via username/password?
