I was pushing and pulling from git in Terminal then I changed my username on github.com. I went to push some changes and it couldn’t push because it was still recognizing my old username.. How do I change/update my username on git in terminal?
- In your terminal, navigate to the repo you want to make the changes in.
git config --listto check current username & email in your local repo.
- Change username & email as desired. Make it a global change or specific to the local repo:
git config [--global] user.name "Full Name"
git config [--global] user.email "email@example.com"
Per repo basis you could also edit
When performing step 2 if you see
credential.helper=manager you need to open the credential manager of your computer (Win or Mac) and update the credentials there
