on LI


This is my first post on Prose and I almost wasn't able to post it. Having followed the guide and run

ssh new@prose.sh

I couldn't log in and got "Permission denied (publickey)" as an error. Undeterred I tried from 3 other hosts and got the same on all of them. So then I tried to sign up for lists.sh, using the same method, and got the same error there. Much head scratching from me later I had got no where and all the online fixes focus on the server side to fix it. So I contacted Erock on Mastodon who helpfully suggested creating a new ed25519 keypair. Which I did by running:

ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C EMAIL@ADDRESS

Lo and behold I was in and you're now reading this. Many thanks Erock!
