Setup remote repo from R- Studio

I tried to set up a new remote repo from R-Studio.
First I opened a New Project with the drop down window and selected version control
Second I typed the Url: https://github.com/myusername/new-repo
Initializing a window opened asking for my username, I typed in. then I Was asked for my password however this was not accepted.
in global options I had generated a SSH key, I tried to use this also but did not work.
What was wrong?

Hi @aloes2512! :wave: Welcome to the Community!

From what you’ve written it sounds like there was a problem with your username or GitHub password?

I found this site that looks like a super thorough guide to getting RStudio working with Git and GitHub:

I’d recommend going through the set up process they describe!
