DigitalOcean useful workaround


1/1. DigitalOcean Permission denied

the issue is within sshd_config file

  1. Login as root to Ubuntu server (or droplet)
  2. Use vim or nano to edit the contents /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  # vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  # nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  1. Now go to the very between of the file (to the line PasswordAuthentication)
     # Change to no to disable tunnelled clear text passwords
     PasswordAuthentication yes
  2. Save the file and reload the SSH config:
    sudo service sshd reload
