Hello,

I would recommend uploading a new SSH key to your Droplet, to do that you can follow the steps here on how to create a new SSH key:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/add-ssh-keys/create-with-openssh/

Then once you have the SSH key ready, you can follow the steps here on how to add the SSH key to your existing Droplet:

And finally, you can follow the steps here on how to SSH to your Droplet:
