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?

if I do:

I added in the .bashrc
!/bin/bash eval `ssh-agent -s` ssh-add
and now I have a .ssh/config file like this:
# personal account # Host personal.repositoryhosting.com Hostname personal.repositoryhosting.com 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. Branch master set up to track remote branch master from origin. Everything up-to-date
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 "firstname.lastname@example.org"

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/id_rsa.pub.
use this to dump the key to your console and then copy it:
and click on add ssh key
paste your new key in and you should be good to go. This worked for me anyway.
