I have two instances running on my aws. I have the same keypair for both of them. I was using both instances for long time. but today I am getting an error on one instance while trying to login through terminal if I run this command.
ssh -i mypem.pem firstname.lastname@example.org Permission denied (publickey).
But If I try to login to other instance with the same
pem file. It works and I can successfully login to it.
I have tried all the solutions
- Permission denied (publickey) when SSH Access to Amazon EC2 instance and
- Trying to SSH into an Amazon Ec2 instance - permission error
but nothing works for me
If I do
ssh -i mypem.pem email@example.com -v
the result is:

What I have tried
chmod 400 mypem.pem
I have also tried this
sudo ssh -i amazonec2.pem ec2-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.us-west 2.compute.amazonaws.com
Please login as the user "ec2-user" rather than the user "root"
then I did this
sudo ssh -i amazonec2.pem ec2-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com -l ec2-user
Permission denied (publickey)
If I try to login to other instance with the same key. I can successfully login. Please help what actually went wrong here
Security Group on my instance is this:
