W access for gitolite-admin DENIED to user
I’ve been trying very hard to get gitolite working. I used the package approach and am able to do a first “git push” with a first user to the server. After that, if if I add a key and try to push something again, I get an error saying “W access for gitolite-admin DENIED to mike”- note that it’s supposed to be using the gitolite user- not my username. I guess this is because I’m adding private keys for both users in my .bash_profile. (I’m using msysgit)…
- git shell on Windows reports “sh.exe has stopped working (APPCRASH)”
- Git pull error on Windows XP: Unable to determine absolute path of git directory
- Bash Folder-File coloring in msysgit on Windows?
- msysgit profile folder with unicode on windows 7
- use Winmerge inside of Git to file diff
- when using git for windows, git bash could not work?
Thanks a lot!

True, you should use a dedicated public/private key for the
gitolite user, the one which is also used for ssh access.
You can confirm it by looking in the gitolite logs (in

See as an example “users are asked for password while using gitolite”.
%HOME%/.ssh/config file could contain something like:

Don’t forget to define

The OP Mike Gagnon confirms in the comments the following config is working:
host gitolite user gitolite hostname myhost port 443 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/gitolite host edison user gitolite hostname myhost port 443 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/mike
I had a similar problem in that I could only make one push to a new gitolite repo, then I lost access.
I was able to fix this by adding my username to the .conf file on the first push:
%> cat conf/gitolite.conf repo gitolite-admin
RW+ = git-admin myusername
