Tower can't connect to git (permission denied) when certificate has different name

I can’t connect to to GitHub repo from Tower (Mac OS X), getting permission denied error. I suppose this is caused by different certificate name (github_rsa not id_rsa). I added identity to ssh and from Terminal everything is working correctly. Any suggestions?

How do I force Git to use the owner and permissions of the enclosing folder?

I have been noticing that when I pull changes to my server that it automatically adds group write access to the files that are changed. However since I am using suPHP that causes a 500 error, so I am needing to disregard any permissions and ownership that the Git repo may have and replace it […]

GIt GUI (SourceTree, Github for Mac, Tower) apps show all files as modified

We have a local development server set up, with Git and whatnot installed. The server is mounted in Finder, which makes it believe it is “local” (from a GUI perspective). I can SSH into the server, run a git status and it returns the results I expect – only modified files showing up as modified, […]

textmate does not save commit message

I’m installing git on a new Mac mini with textmate2 and git 1.8.3.2. It works quite fine, but when I use gca (git commit -v -a) it doesn’t act as before. It opens textmate2 so I can type my commit message, but when I save and close it doesn’t jump back to terminal as before. […]

Fetch over SSH times out but succeeds over HTTPS

Every time I want to use a normal git server with a clone URL of the form git@…, the request times out. I think this is due to some firewall on my Mac, but I am sure that I have turned everything off. The standard firewall that you can configure in ‘System Preferences’ is turned […]

Initial commit using “git commit -am” failing and causing error when pushing to GitHub

I am new to Git/GitHub and am having enormous difficulty pushing my new repo up to GitHub. I created my project locally, which essentially has the following directory structure: myapp/ src/ <A bunch of source files> build.grade gradle.properties README.md .gitignore For good measure, here’s my .gitignore (in case its the culprit): .idea *.iml *.ipr *.iws […]
