So this is my first time trying to commit so this very well may be user error but I was unable to find anything through my searching. When I try to make my first push by pushing the origin to github I get a login window. When I type my username it changes it to firstname.lastname@example.org and says that they were unable to authenticate. It is pulling this error:
I tried using a token to login and when I set that up I set it to be open forever with all permissions. That worked for the first push; however, I am still getting a login window everytime I want to push to my repository. Do I need to make a token everytime? Anyone that can help this newbie is much appreciated!
I set up caching credentials in hopes that this would work and now I am getting permission denied on everything (git add, git commit, and git push) unless I run it as a sudo command. As long as I am running everything as root it works and doesn’t ask for credentials again.
