Unable to Use Git PUSH with AWS AMI "WordPress with LiteSpeed" ?


New Member
Is there anything within the Amazon AWS Machine image "WordPress with LiteSpeed" that may prevent me accessing a Git repository (with a private key)?

- My OLS install works fine, website up and running.

- I can SSH from my local Windows pc to my Ubuntu installation using private keys for user Ubuntu.
ssh ubuntu@host-name

- I can also use WinTCP to access all files on Ubuntu.

On Ubuntu Git was setup as follows:-
sudo mkdir /var/repo
sudo mkdir /var/repo/repo-name.git
sudo chown ubuntu:ubuntu /var/repo/repo-name.git -R
cd /var/repo/repo-name.git
git init --bare

From Windows - showing remote setup correctly
git remote -v
live ssh://ubuntu@server-name/var/repo/repo-name.git/ (fetch)
live ssh://ubuntu@server-name/var/repo/repo-name.git/ (push)

Attempt to push from windows to Ubuntu...
git push live

ubuntu@server-name: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Thank you for your help.

Eventually this was resolved by adding the following to the top of windows file /.ssh/config
HostKeyAlgorithms +ssh-rsa
PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes +ssh-rsa
