Permission denied (publickey) git clone
#First start by setting up your own public/private key pair set. This can use either DSA or RSA, so basically any key you setup will work. On most systems you can use ssh-keygen. #cd into your .ssh directory. Open up the terminal and run: cd ~/.ssh && ssh-keygen #copy this to your clipboard. On OS X run: cat id_rsa.pub | pbcopy On Linux run: cat id_rsa.pub | xclip On Windows (via Cygwin/Git Bash) run: cat id_rsa.pub | clip On Windows (Powershell) run: Get-Content id_rsa.pub | Set-Clipboard (Thx to @orion elenzil) #Add your key to your account via the website. #Finally setup your .gitconfig. git config --global user.name "bob" git config --global user.email bob@... (don't forget to restart your command line to make sure the config is reloaded) #That's it you should be good to clone and checkout.
