SSH Permissions

So this is my first time using Git/Bitbucket. I can push, commit, clone, and all that from Bitbucket to my local computer, but not from bitbucket to my server...using ssh.

DO i generate a new key pair on my server, and add that new public key to use on bitbucket? If so will that overwrite the public key on my server which i use to connect to my computer?

Error Message when trying to clone from bitbucket to my server, where "sample' is the repo name:


Cloning into 'sample'...
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Yes you'll generate a new key pair and name it server for example 

ssh-keygen -f server

 this will save from overwriting your current keys

That was it. I was afraid i'd lock myself out of my server. Thanks
