after adding password cann no longer push/pull

I pulled a repository, changed sth and added a password.

Now I can not push:

hg push --verbose --debug

results in

pushing to https://rei3ner@bitbucket.org/octave_java/octave-java
using https://bitbucket.org/octave_java/octave-java
http auth: user rei3ner, password not set
sending capabilities command
abort: error: Connection timed out

I think the question is how to make hg ask me for my password, right?

Hi  Ernst! You can create an auth section in your .hgrc file. That will allow you to enter your credentials:

[auth]
bb.prefix = https://bitbucket.org/
bb.username = your_username
bb.password = your_password

The 'bb' part is an arbitrary identifier and it's used to match the prefix with username and password - handy for managing different username/password combinations with different sites (prefix).

 

Hope that helps!

Ana
