I got an email “Notice for new authentication token formats” about creating a new personal access token, so I followed those instructions. Now obviously I can’t access my repositories. How do I get back to where I was? There was no follow-up in the email or anywhere on how to get back to work. I’m not trying to become a git expert, I just need access to my repositories.
I would read how to do this myself but I don’t even know what to search for.
If I try a “git fetch” then it pops up a log-in window, but using my email and password doesn’t work. In fact I got an e-mail about “Basic authentication using a password to Git is deprecated and will soon no longer work.”
Then just get:
Logon failed, use ctrl+c to cancel basic credential prompt.
Username for ‘https://github.com’: ^C
