Using SSH Keys with New User

Posted August 10, 2014 2.1k views

I followed the steps to secure my server by creating a new user and logging in with that instead of the root user. However, I loose the ability to log in without being prompted for my password because my SSH Key does not recognize the new user. How can I allow the new user to automatically login?
