I'm setting up a first BitBucket git repository, and have followed the instructions step by step.
On the commit and push instructions it says to:
echo "# This is my README" >> README.md
git add README.md
git commit -m "First commit. Adding a README."
git push -u origin master
That last line failes with the message:
remote: abort: this user account does not have a password configured - to use your account over HTTPS, it is necessary to have a password set.
OK, but where and how do you do that? Any documentation that I have seen seems to think that git will prompt you for a password (and I did run the password caching utility that BitBucket recommends).
Environment: Windows 8.1, with the BitBucket recommended version of Git installed.
OK, so I found the problem. When I signed up for BitBucket, I used my Google account. That signup process did not store a password withing BitBucket.
If you go to your user account within BitBucket and configure a specific password, then it works.
