I have connected many times to github and know about generating ssh keys and putting the
id_rsa.pub into github settings. But for some reason with this install I can not get it to connect. I am just trying to clone a private repo to a new server but when I the clone I get :
Permission denied (publickey). fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
If I run :
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org
It tells me I have successfully authenticated.
What else can I try? I am running this on a bitnami stack so maybe that is causing issues? This is probably the problem, I just am not sure what to do about it. There are already a set of keys in the .ssh/authorized_keys dir. I left those alone as this is how I am connecting with putty/pagent. I put the new keys in /.ssh and left the authorized_keys alone. What would be the correct way to set this up? Should I just delete both pairs and start over? Use the same keys for putty and github? Why do I still authenticate if there is a problem?
