GitHub: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly


Question

I have followed these instructions below to upload a project.

Global setup:

 Download and install Git
  git config --global user.name "Your Name"
  git config --global user.email [email protected]
  Add your public key


Next steps:

  mkdir tirengarfio
  cd tirengarfio
  git init
  touch README
  git add README
  git commit -m 'first commit'
  git remote add origin [email protected]:tirenga/tirenga.git
  git push origin master

But I get this error:

Permission denied (publickey). fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Accepted Answer

For me the problem was the execution of clone via sudo.

If you clone to a directory where you have user permission ( /home/user/git) it will work fine.

(Explanation: Running a command as superuser will not work with the same public key as running a command as user. Therefore Github refused the connection.)

This solution requires a SSH key already to be set up: https://help.github.com/articles/generating-ssh-keys

Yes, It's a public key Problem. I'm a windows user,and the page below help me resolve this problem.

http://help.github.com/win-set-up-git/

more precisely this link should be helpful

after you created the RSA key pair, you must to add it to SSH using:

ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

or wherever you created your rsa key pair.

Type the following command using your username and repository name:

git clone https://github.com/{user name}/{repo name}

in Ubuntu this works perfectly.

I got a solution after a long time in tutorials.

I followed the github tutorial on this link -> https://help.github.com/articles/error-permission-denied-publickey and I was able to connect in every step. But when I was trying to git push -u origin master I got this error:

Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights

Thats how I`ve fixed it!! Go to the project directory using the Terminal and check it out

$git remote -v

You will get something like this:

origin  ssh://[email protected]/yourGithubUserName/yourRepo.git (fetch)
origin  ssh://[email protected]/yourGithubUserName/yourRepo.git (push)

If you are using anything different then [email protected], open the config file on git directory by typing the command:

vi .git/config

And configure the line

[remote "origin"]

url = ssh://[email protected]/yourGithubUserName/yourRepo.git

fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/

In my case, I had to setup the public key for another user, as I already had one for my main user. once I switched users and performed the commands in the link above I was able to perform the setup for my test server without a problem.
