Ubunto Login SSH2-RSA key enabled

Hi just leaning about all this so hoping this is a schoolboy error with is simple answer

I have created a Ubunto droplet with SSH2-RSA key enabled so that I can connect using stfp later. Now I want to build my LAMP server but don’t know what my Ubunto login credentials should be in the console?

Thank you in advance

Hi, I am novice linux level but I think I can answer this :)

  • first and most important you need to put your public key in .ssh folder on your client machine with 755 permission on in.
  • if you disable password login on server your ssh credentials will be ssh username@ipofyourdroplet and password for your key if you add it on creation of your key pair
  • if you have user/pass login active on you droplet your credential will be same as above but you need to enter your password for username and rest is same.

I hope this will help you
