SOLVED: Troubleshooting Putty (Windows) SSH connection to Siteground server



I started having problem have SSH issues after SiteGround changed its admin “SSH Keys Manager” interface.

These are some of the errors I experienced troubleshooting this issue:
PuttyGen Error: Couldn’t load private key (decryption check failed)
OpenSSH SSH-2 private key (old PEM format)

I solved it and watch my video to find out how I did it.
