What password should I use for a newly created ssh public key?
I have been trying to create an ssh key for my droplet. I have followed the Digital Ocean documentation on it and I can’t seem to get it to work.
I run the following commands from the documentation however when it asks me for the password in the final step I don’t know what to use as a password?
I have used my root password and it does not work.
