First generate a key:
#ssh-keygen -t rsa
#ssh-keygen -t rsa Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa): /root/id_bitbucket Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /root/id_bitbucket. Your public key has been saved in /root/id_bitbucket.pub. The key fingerprint is: 3f:da [email protected] The key's randomart image is:
Now, add the key to the ssh-agent:
Oops, there’s an error!
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.
Here’s the fix:
#exec ssh-agent bash
To make sure it does not happen again, add the following to .bashrc:
SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-qoIvoV8968/agent.8968; export SSH_AUTH_SOCK; SSH_AGENT_PID=8969; export SSH_AGENT_PID;
Now, add the key to the agent.
Now, add the key to bitbucket.
after printing the public key to your screen:
#cat /root/.ssh/id_bitbucket.pub ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQCofxmd7nnaLx9aIjA5Q+U3gA2acUBvZy6NW+6kd3cqtb/QfLBVasjf/T6a7lVhNSlGYF25o+LhEJsz7A3JADXexG7VUQcuP1N4jkYlVDFx7KoLnS8tq9oaxMTwmjUMnsnJuKk+eE0y3omw3LcSf5ivAuuISd9BjlxuNHzpHHzZGZDorCEAUi2pzDerUNIbdxkaovCuERxys7ySnEChsj62auEEFN0wEKB4tW4uTLPq3XEfs3dK2RZkfjG9WTy6IoItrau9GMJPYVLVx2TFotiWCdwzbwpJHJXsQxmqdXoj3/SJgUIHNUK8oY8ykbPx9X7h/AI3xv41qwHw1A7LNePT [email protected]
Copy it entirely, including the [email protected] parameter at the end.
Now, on trying to clone a repo, it will just work.
