Anyway, that was the error.
I’m currently signed in GitHub and in GitHub Desktop as my main account, but WebMatrix seems to think im my alt. I’ve seen the SSH keys and none of them are causing the problem.

I tried using SSH instead of HTTPS on WebMatrix. It didn’t work either. Right now I just use the old command line, but I can easily mess things up.

Also, I should have said this first. I am not the owner of the current repository im pushing to, on either of my accounts. But on my main account, I am a collaborator, and the repository is for collaborators only.

  • WebMatrix 3, cannot push on GitLab
  • Unable to clone git repository from siteground
  • How can I resolve GIT conflicts in Webmatrix 3?

    Using ssh would be a good idea in order to establish your identity and validate the access to your GitHub repo.

    But your are not using an ssh url (git@github.com:username/reponame).
    From the error message, you are using an https one. Make sure to change that url, and you will benefit from ssh automatic authentication.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
