Can't login to GitHub

Although I worked with SourceTree for months on this computer, I can't login to git hub anymore. When I fetch/pull/ etc., I get a Git login. I enter the correct password and user and the window keeps popping out.


I tried logging into Github site and it worked perfectly. I also tried copying the password so that I won't be wrong. I also tried logging in to the email instead of the username, none of it worked.I am using the latest version of SourceTree. I also tried deleting the user in the settings and creating a new one, although the old user used to work and just stopped working for no reason.


How do I resolve this issue

1 answer

The problem is that SourceTree's embedded Git client comes with git-credential-manager v1.12, which no longer works with Github since they disabled TLS 1.1 on their site.  You need to get git-credential-manager v1.14.  Easiest way to do that is to install a current copy of the Git client separately, and then switch SourceTree over to use that ("system git") instead of its embedded client.  Alternatively, you can update git-credential-manager in your embedded client by replacing its files with the newest version from Microsoft.
