Github SSH Permission denied to deploy key


I created a fresh repo, was able to clone with SSH and commit and everything. But when I try to push I get the following error:

ERROR: Permission to Ronin11/MealPlanr.git denied to deploy key
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights


ssh -T [email protected]

I was able to verify that my ssh key is working. I have no idea what happened. This was just working the other day. I haven’t touched these settings in months.
All this was using the terminal on Mac.



You mentioned you were using OSX. If you’re on 10.12.2+ it may be a problem with your ssh config. Github’s documentation has a note about that.

Specifically they say add the following to ~/.ssh/config

Host *
AddKeysToAgent yes
UseKeychain yes
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Hope this helps
