    Default Git push Windows in KDE

    Every time I try a git push, it tries to pass my password as my username. How do I change that?

    Hi
    Have you configured your username?
    Code:
    git config --global user.name "abetterfish"
    git config --global user.name
    Or in the root location of your git project;
    Code:
    git config user.name "abetterfish"

    Hi
    So it's just wanting the password, since it's github, have a look here;
    https://help.github.com/articles/cac...ssword-in-git/

    Or look at using ssh for authentication?

    No, sorry. It's using my password as my username, but I will look into using SSH for authentication. Thanks

    Hi
    Yes, ssh should be a better option anyway
