Pushing to Git returning Error Code 403 fatal: HTTP request failed


I was able to clone a copy of this repo over HTTPS authenticated. I’ve made some commits and want to push them back out to the GitHub server but getting below error.


To definitely be able to login using https protocol, you should first set your authentication credential to the git Remote URI:

Then you’ll be asked for a password when trying to git push.

In fact, this is on the http authentication format. You could set a password too:

You should be aware that if you do this, your github password will be stored in plaintext in your .git directory, which is obviously undesirable.
