Ive been trying to setup my first Github repository, and therefore ive been trying to connect my account locally, to the cloud. However any time im trying to push/pull or anything that requires authentication i get stuck.
The problem is that, even though ive setup a Personal Access Token, whenever i insert it as my “password” in the terminal, it comes back with an error and this message.
remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.
remote: Please see Token authentication requirements for Git operations | The GitHub Blog for more information.
fatal: Authentication failed for ‘https://github.com/barth010may/Imperative-Programming/’
Its also really hard to know if the token has been inserted correctly, since the terminal doesn’t show your password when copying in.
Does anybody know how to fix this problem, since i cant use many of the commands without the access. I appreciate the help.
