I am trying to set git up with http://danielmiessler.com/study/git/#website to manage my site.
I have gotten to the last step in the instructions: git push website +master:refs/heads/master
I am working using the git ming32 command line in win7
$ git push website +master:refs/heads/master [email protected]***.com's password: Connection closed by 126.96.36.199 fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
One problem here may be that the program is looking for [email protected]***.com. when I connect via ssh to my site I have a different username( lets say ‘abc’). so maybe this should be [email protected]***.com. If so I don’t know how to change this or if I can push under an alias
You can specify the username that SSH should send to the remote system as part of your remote’s URL. Put the username, followed by an
@, before the remote hostname.
git remote set-url website [email protected]***.com:path/to/repo
