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 198.91.80.3
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


Solution

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
