  • I changed my password on github and the auth with ssh doesnt work anymore, what should I do add a new key and delete the old one or update the new one? If so can you link me how to do so I have trouble finding that info, thanks!

  • I don't understand, I've never created any ssh key, yet I can commit, clone and push projects into my gitlab without having to enter any password.
    I tried editing and pushing a random projects as I found this behaviour weird, but obviously it didn't let me push the project (cause it is not my project)
    Is there any way I could have linked my gitlab account to my local git without realising it? x)

  • First of all, thank you for telling us the subject in detail, explanatory, beautiful and understandable language. I would like to point out that I benefited a lot as a Windows user. However, I had to investigate some points in several places. Therefore, I have written all the necessary steps for the convenience of other Windows users one by one in this comment.

    Windows users can follow these steps via Git Bash:
    1- $ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C ""
    2- $ eval "$(ssh-agent -s)"
    3- $ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
    4- $ cat .ssh/
    5- $ ssh -T
    6- $ git remote set-url origin
    7- Then make changes to any file in the repository. Afterwards follow the add and commit steps, respectively.
    8- $ git push –force origin
    **No need to add dollar symbols. It's already at the beginning of the line in Git Bash. I wrote them to avoid confusion.**

    Have an Octotastic Day! (:

  • Still the same "> Permission denied (publickey)." Went over this tutorial many times and checked for errors on my part. Did definetly not help.

  • good day ! Te random art is actually the key sir (or one of them) I'm new to this stuff (studying in school) and they talk a lot of theory and I'm testing a lot of these things on my own to learn I feel so overwhelmed. But there is a rsa key generator program you can download that shows you all the different types of keys and what they look like and I think sha 256 is like near impossible to crack. By no means can I prove this and this was like the last thing i read a while back. There is no telling how long that information is still valid. If anyone knows more please correct me. I want to know all that i can. When i first learned about the tcp handshake and (this is what I am trying to understand in depth) There were a lot of things about different Key generations that I had questions about.

  • So helpful man, thanks! I have a question, what if I have 2 github accounts, e.g enterprise and personal. Could my pc has two ssh keys stored?

  • Mine is still asking me for my username and password. Every command seemed to work fine… Any suggestions on where should I look at? Thanks in advance!

    PS: I reopen the terminal before cloning the repository I want (I ended up typing the username and password).

  • https clones will always ask for login. I had to clone my repo again using ssh after adding the key to github before I was allowed to push without credentials. I believe this issue is resolved in this guide
    Although I didn't see this before cloning a fresh copy of my repo.

  • $ eval $"(ssh-agent -s)"

    3 [main] ssh-agent 4860 child_info_fork::abort: C:Program FilesGitusrbinmsys-crypto-1.0.0.dll: Loaded to different address: parent(0x860000) != child(0x840000)

    fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

    what does it mean?

  • i had to set up a config file to make this work. I think you forgot to cover that.
    User git
    PreferredAuthentications publickey
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa
