unable to connect with SSH

September 1, 2018 357 views

I configured my droplet to set up for ssh by adding my public key into the droplet UI. Whenever I attempt to ssh in by pasting the private key I get an accessed denied error. I have not been able to log into my droplet so far. I am using a mac with terminal

What I could suggest here is adding the -v argument which would give you some really useful debug information that you could use as a starting point. So the command would look something like this:

ssh -vvv your_user@your.server.ip.address

Hope that this helps! You could paste the output here as well if you wish.
