I am a bit of a newbie with linux, so must apologize straight away if this is something obvious and/or silly.
I am trying to create a git pull cronjob that gets update from GitHub repo every few minutes.
Now the problem is that I can not get it working without entering pass-phrase every time cron runs.
ssh-agent and ssh-add does not do the trick as they loose the passwords every time user logs out. So I got the guide
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ssh-passwordless-login-with-keychain-for-scripts/ and followed it, but still no results.
I can not seem to get the keychain working properly. I think.
The steps I have done:
- Installed the keychain from RPMforge.
vi $HOME/.bash_profileto include:
And according to the guide, after I re-log, keychain should be working and I should not need to enter the pass-phrase every time I
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org
I am probably missing something, but can not seem to figure out what. Maybe someone has some suggestions ?
