Before I forget, and some may find this useful too.
If you are deploying a few projects to the same server you will run into this, you need to use unique deploy keys to access each project unless you want to add the server’s public key to your account. For security reasons I did not want to do that.
First generate some deployment keys with
ssh-keygen. Here’s some more info on adding your deploy keys to your git repo
So I need to set up my ssh config file in
~/.ssh/config like so…
Host project-a HostName github.com User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/deploy_key_a_rsa IdentitiesOnly yes Host project-b HostName github.com User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/deploy_key__b_rsa IdentitiesOnly yes
Let’s say your two project git urls look like this:
You can now clone with the correct keys using..
$> git clone project-a:anon/project-a.git $> git clone project-b:anon/project-b.git
