Cannot push cleaned history, Read-only mode


I'm attempting to use the BFG utility to clean all the big files out of my history.

I followed the process to the letter (that is, run the utility on a cloned mirror), but when I go to push, I find that the repo is in read-only mode.  This error is preventing me from fixing the issue that caused the error.

remote: repository is in read only mode (over 2 GB size limit).
remote: Learn how to reduce your repository size:
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)

Hello James,

Please, raise a support request so we can review the status of your repository and do the cleaning on the server side for you.

Kind regards,
