Update: Got it fixed on the same day I posted this, just thought this'd be a funny story to share haha. Instead of generating a key FIRST on my client computer, I generated a key at my remote computer. So this means that I can now only access my server via ssh on the sever itself smh. Thankfully the server is at my house, so I can undo this mess directly there, but it's probably gonna take a while lol. Gosh I feel so stupid right now for this, I literally confused the client for the server in a tutorial I watched, learned I had it backwards once I saw a Digital Ocean text tutorial. Wish me luck on fixing this lol.
