I'm new to Linux so keep that in mind when offering advice.
I became over zealous and ran the command here:
useradd -ou 0 -g 0 john passwd john
now I try to connect the way I usually do:
ssh -i yok.pem email@example.com -vv
and I'm getting:
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 21: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to staging.yok.com [188.8.131.52] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: key_load_public: No such file or directory debug1: identity file yok.pem type -1 debug1: key_load_public: No such file or directory debug1: identity file yok.pem-cert type -1 debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.9
I luckily still have one connection to the server open. I checked my ~/.ssh folder and the files all have 600 permissions.
What do I need to do here? I'm stuck.
