Unable to connect to my SFTP: Authentication Failed
I’m following the instructions here however I’m not able to connect to my droplet and I get the below error.
I have added my private key to FileZilla and my public key to my account on digital ocean. I also attempt to connect on port 22 and without a password. Yet I still get authentication failed. Any hints?
Status: Connecting to 184.108.40.206…
Response: fzSftp started, protocolversion=9
Command: keyfile “/Users/christianmacedo/.ssh/idrsa”
Command: open “email@example.com” 22
Error: Authentication failed.
Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server
