Copy that ssh pub key to the remote server

When setting up a server its customary to copy the ssh key to the authorized keys file so that you don’t rely on password auth to sign in to the remote server.

Its generally something like a 4 or 5 step process but linux has a utility to get it down to one step, ssh-copy-id.

$ ssh-copy-id dev@myserver.com

After entering your password you’re all set! Not turn off that password authentication in your ssh config and start deploying your app!
