github / Permission denied when pushing


You might get this error when you try to push your repo to github:

git push origin master

Error:

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Solution:
Maybe there are some “leftovers” in your configuration. Just remote them:

git remote rm origin

… and push your repo again:

git remote add origin https://github.com/yourName/yourRepo.git
git push origin master
