How can we access the terminal of Digital Ocean with SSH?
Sure, I can help you with that! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to access the terminal of DigitalOcean using SSH.
First, let’s make sure you have everything you need. You’ll need an SSH client installed on your local machine, and you should have already created a DigitalOcean droplet with an SSH key. If you haven’t done that yet, you can find instructions on how to create a droplet and SSH key on DigitalOcean’s website.
- Open your terminal or command prompt on your local machine.
- Use the
sshcommand to log in to your droplet. The syntax for the command is:lessCopy code
ssh [user]@[droplet ip address]Replace
[user]with the username you created when you set up your droplet, and replace
[droplet ip address]with the IP address of your droplet.For example, if your username is
myuserand your droplet’s IP address is
203.0.113.0, you would type:cssCopy code
- If this is your first time connecting to this droplet, you may be prompted to confirm the host’s authenticity. Type
- You will then be prompted for your SSH key passphrase. Enter the passphrase you created when you generated your SSH key.
- If everything was entered correctly, you will be logged in to your droplet’s terminal.
Congratulations! You have successfully accessed the terminal of your DigitalOcean droplet using SSH. From here, you can use the command line interface to manage your droplet and perform a variety of tasks.
It’s important to note that you should take proper security measures when using SSH to access your server. DigitalOcean provides documentation on best practices for securing your droplet, and you should follow these guidelines to protect your data and ensure the security of your server.
