git push -u origin master -> Permission Denied

When I try pushing my git repository to the repository on Bitbucket, I get the following error:

 

Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.

 

Sorry, I'm pretty new to github and Bitbucket, and am still trying to get the hang of this. I was trying to use a private repository. Not sure if that is part of the issue.

It turns out that the answer was to create a new ssh key on my own computer and to copy the public key to bitbucket. After that, push origin master worked just fine.

@wdchild  That's great. Thank you for sharing the answer.

Hi @wdchild ,

Please do find the link "https://www.atlassian.com/git"

and this is the commands help you out to push the file.

  1. git init
  2. git add filename
  3. git commit -m "message"
  4. git remote add origin "url of repo"
  5. git push --set-upstream origin master
  6. git push origin master

Thank you,

Regards,

Prashant

Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.
