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

I just got the same problem and just figured out what’s cause.

Github seems only supports ssh way to read&write the repo, although https way also displayed ‘Read&Write’.

So you need to change your repo config on your PC to ssh way:

  1. edit .git/config file under your repo directory
  2. find url=entry under section [remote "origin"]
  3. change it from url=https://[email protected]/derekerdmann/lunch_call.git to [email protected]/derekerdmann/lunch_call.git. that is, change all the texts before @ symbol to ssh://git
  4. Save config file and quit. now you could use git push origin master to sync your repo on GitHub
