First time setting up a remote repository

Hi folks, this is my first time using SourceTree and I am having some difficulty pushing my local repo to my remote one.  Here's the beginning of the error message I get:

 

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v --tags --set-upstream career-exploration refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master

Pushing to git@bitbucket.org:hdykiel/career-exploration.git

Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

 

 

When I copy my access key from sourcetree and paste it in bitbucket.com, it tells me the key is invalid. Any idea what's going on here?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Hadrien

Which operating system?

Hi 
It sounds like you don't have a key associated with your account in bbitbucket and you get the error when you try to add one.

When you created your SSH key did you following the instructions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/set-up-ssh-for-git-728138079.html#SetupanSSHkey-ssh1?

If you create keys using puttygen it is possible to get the wrong format, I believe SSH2 RSA is the correct one.

Alternatively you can use HTTPS rather than SSH URLs
