WHY?: repository access denied. access via a deployment key is read-only.

 

I am trying to commit my new application to the repository for the first time.   Thought I followed the directions to a tee however I am getting the error in the subject line no matter what I try.

What is the trick to getting the first commit though?   Did I not set up my key properly?   It seems to tell me that keys are for read only access only but how does one commit with only read access?

Deployment keys are to deploy. You need to install an ssh key, or push via HTTP.

I was looking for a place I could do that but was finding it not too obvious.   "Access Keys" was the only setting I could find.

that link is broken

oops.  it was broken when i clicked on it for some reason but a copy and paste found it
