Permission denied (publickey) I still get an error

I keep getting this error in git. I have read and tried very many things but none seems to work (changed 700 or 600 permissions, I selected only the rsa key with the -i option, I did ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa, …)

Can anyone help?

  • Git commit ERROR: Repository invalid
  • Is it possible to have a local file that's different from its remote counterpart on Github?
  • Git: What is the index
  • Git - get list of files changed in a branch that was merged back
  • How do I force fetching of tags if I have the --no-tags option set
  • Does using Git make sense for small internal teams?
  • thanks

    if I do:

    ssh-add -l

    I get

    I added in the .bashrc

    eval `ssh-agent -s`

    and now I have a .ssh/config file like this:

    #  personal account
    IdentitiesOnly yes
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa

    Usually the id_dsa (or id_rsa) are your private keys, and the corresponding file with ‘.pub’ on the end is your public key.

    What is your ~/.ssh/personal_key and how does it relate to your public/private key?
    – and does your ssh agent know about it?

    removed my old .ssh folder – back it up. might not be ideal depending on the number of ssh keys you have and what they are for.

    craicerjack@ubuntu:~$ sudo rm -rf .ssh

    cd back into your project directory

    git init
    touch README
    git push -u origin master
    The authenticity of host 'your_host' can't be established.
    ECDSA key fingerprint is b2:9f:1a:8c:13:9b:1f:a2:64:a9:5c:db:61:a5:04:bb.
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? 
    Warning: Permanently added 'your_host' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.

    This creates a new .ssh dir with known_hosts file.
    cd into .ssh

    craicerjack@ubuntu:~$ cd ~/.ssh

    Next create a new key

    ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ""

    via on gitlab
    or on github.

    Generating public/private rsa key pair.
    Enter file in which to save the key (/home/carlos/.ssh/id_rsa): (you can leave this blank if you are in your .ssh dir, otherwise choose where to save the key)
    Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): (leave this blank if you wish)
    Enter same passphrase again: (leave this blankif you wish)
    Your identification has been saved in /home/carlos/.ssh/id_rsa.
    Your public key has been saved in /home/carlos/.ssh/

    use this to dump the key to your console and then copy it:

    cat ~/.ssh/

    go to your account in gitlab or github.
    gitlab –
    github –

    and click on add ssh key

    paste your new key in and you should be good to go. This worked for me anyway.
