We use Dreamweaver as HTML editor, we tried to connect the clone of our repository within the site manager of Dreamweaver but we keep receiving a login error:


Error: git: 'credential-osxkeychain' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.
remote: Login failed due to incorrect login credentials or method.

What could be the problem?

Hi Franco and welcome to the community.

The error message means that Git is trying to access a credential helper that it cannot find.

Are you able to clone the repository from a terminal on the same computer where you have Dreamweaver installed? Or do you get the same error? This is to understand if the issue occurs with Dreamweaver only or not.

Do you know if Dreamweaver comes with its own installation of Git? This error can also occur with SourceTree, which uses its own Git, and the resolution for that is to create a symlink between git-credential-osxkeychain from the local Git installation to SourceTree's, we have a doc about this here. This could potentially apply to Dreamweaver if it also comes with its own Git executables.

After some search on the internet, I also found the following post mentioning that this was a bug with an older version of Dreamweaver and an update of the application resolved the issue:

Kind regards,
