I purchased a VPS from namecheap and now I am trying to ssh in to it (Ultimate goal is to set up Ghost Blogging Platform on it).
I tried the following command -
$ ssh root@_ip_address_to_my_vps_
I get the following error -
The authenticity of host '_ip_address_to_my_vps_ (_ip_address_to_my_vps_)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is _fingerprint_redacted_. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? y Host key verification failed.
Yes, I know that there are tons of "host key verification failed" threads out there. But none of the solutions work. They all ask to generate the ssk key which I did as follows -
$ ssh-keygen -R _ip_address_to_my_vps_
The output indicates that the know_hosts file was updated but I continue to get the same error.
Any idea what I still haven't done?
