So I inherited a Droplet.
I’ve added my ssh key into the settings on the control panel.
I tried to connect to via SSH, root@my-ip
No luck, I keep getting
Permission denied (publickey)
Why is the control panel not updating the authorized_keys on my server as I assume it’s supposed to be?
I can access things though the console, which painfully slow and doesn’t seem to support any kind of paste (super lame).
$ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys" obviously won’t work since I can’t get access.
SO what do I do? Type my whole public key into the console by hand? That’s the most BS thing ever. What else?
Help is appreciated. Thanks.
