I have followed a million guides regarding this and I cannot get it to work. Earlier, I successfully pushed via SSH to my private Bitbucket git repository, now suddenly it wont work.
I have recreated the keys with a new passphrase, added it to my Bitbucket settings and it wont work.
Okay, here are the steps I took:
- Deleted old key pair (project1 and project1.pub)
- Recreated it with this command
ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/project1 -C "project1"
- Created a
~/.sshfile for my two Bitbucket accounts, with the following contents:
Host project1 HostName bitbucket.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/project1 Host project2 HostName bitbucket.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/project2
- Grabbed the contents of
project1.puband created a new SSH key entry in my Bitbucket account.
~/.zshrcplugin list like this:
plugins=(git ssh-agent)and restarted Terminal
ssh-add -land saw only
ssh-add ~/.ssh/project1, entered my passphrase and success, like this:
2048 SHA256:THESHA256 /Users/myuser/.ssh/project2 (RSA) 2048 SHA256:THESHA256 /Users/myuser/.ssh/project1 (RSA)
- Restarted Terminal and did
ssh-add -land it listed both entries
- Went to my project and did
git pushand it told me I had no access.
When I do
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org, it tells me I'm logged in with the username of project2.
logged in as project2_user.
My system is OS X 10.11.5
I could never fix multiple identities on my computer and always used HTTPS, but I need to make everything more secure with SSH, which also allows my account to have two-factor authentication. Therefore using SSH is a must now and I don't know what to do.
P.S: I did the creating steps for the identity for project2 too, but I'm fairly certain that it doesn't work either.
Guide I followed:
project2 has no passphrase, while project1 does! Just thought maybe this is relevant.
