I want to push README.md to Github.
Using Ubuntu 14.04LTS
So, I commit in the following steps.
echo "# test" >> README.md git init git add README.md git commit -m "first commit" git remote add origin https://github.com/user/repo.git git push -u origin master
But, below error occurred.
error: The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden while accessing https://github.com/user/repo.git/info/refs fatal: HTTP request failed
I know solve this error this way
git remote set-url origin https://firstname.lastname@example.org/user/repo.git
In this way , I must enter password.
