    Hello,

    Can't Login to WHM After Fresh Install with SSH Key Passphrase.

    I'm using Digital Ocean, i set my private key before create droplet so it's automatically added to the server.

    I can login to the server with root and ssh key passphrase but i can't login to whm with same passphrase.

    My passphrase has 64 character length.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks.

    Greetings!

    WHM doesn't use the SSH key for authentication. You need to use the password for the 'root' user.
