Issues publishing to github

Recommended Posts

So I'm working with my club and then a group of friends on separate projects both using Visual Studio 2012. I was able to publish to the club's repo on github fine and all but I can't publish to the one for my friends' repo on github. I get this error when I try to publish a change to my friends' repo.

An error occurred. Detailed message: An error was raised by libgit2. Category = Net (Error).
Response status code does not indicate success: 403 (Forbidden).

I'm not sure why. Also, I remember it asking for a username and password when I published to my club's email and it never asks for a password when I try to use my friends' and my repo.

 

Sorry if this is wrong but I'm kind of beginner using github and it sounds like people recommend that.

They wanted me to get practice so they had me make the account and create the repo. That's what I was thinking. Because when I published to the club's repo it asked for a password but not when I tried publishing to the repo I made for my friends and me. Is it possible that visual studio is using the club's account and trying to publish to the other repo? It would make sense for me not to have access then. But I can't find a setting to try switching accounts or anything.

Not sure, as I'm not the VS git plugin.

Have you tried using 'GitHub for windows'? It really simplifies publishing to GitHub.
