Fixing Too Many Authentication Failures For Username Error with Octopress

Too many authentication failures for username error message

Since I have setup an Octopress in my local machine, you can see how I did it here with Mac, and here with Windows. I have deployed to my webhost (HostGator) via Rsync.

I actually just deployed to create a demo video, but because I moved from one host to another, it detects that my public key is used in too many connections, and I got this error message.

So basically when I type:

ssh -p 2222 kimiweb6@wphowtosite.com

Received disconnect from IP Address: :2 Too many authentication failures for username

In this case, my username is kimiweb6 and my host is wphowtosite.com

Also typed, ssh -p 2222 -o PubkeyAuthentication=no kimiweb6@192.232.251.95 brought me to the Too many authentication failures for username result.
