GitHub: Permission denied (publickey)

I decided that the famous GitHub error Permission denied (publickey) is worth a blog entry, even if a short one.

We all heard the useless tipp: 'Go and add your ssh-keys in the GitHub FrontEnd.'

Let me suggest a different solution entirely. It might very well be that you mistyped your project name when adding it to your local git.  

Remove and Add Origins

Let's remove the old name:


git remote rm origin

 
Add it again, and don't mistype this time:


git remote add origin git@github.com:Username/Projectname
VoilĂ  I hope that helps.
