Decided to try Gitea today by setting it up on my personal hosted server running Ubuntu 18.04.
I downloaded the v1.8.1 binary and gitea.service file, followed the install docs (including creating a ‘git’ user), completed the web-based setup process, and then created an organization and a repo within it. Everything was going great till I tried to
git push -u origin master and was prompted for a username and password.
I tried the username/password for my Gitea user account, but it didn’t work. I tried ‘git’ as the username with no password, but it didn’t work. I went back to the web UI and added my SSH key to my user account, then again tried both ‘git’ and my username, but neither worked.
What might I be missing?
