Scenario 1. I am doing this from /home/deploy directory
I am trying to set up ssh with github for capistrano deployment. this has been an absolute nightmare.
when I do ssh firstname.lastname@example.org as the deploy account I get
Permission denied (publickey).
so may be the key is not being found, so If I do a
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.
(i did verify that the ssh-agent was running) If I do exec ssh-agent bash and then repeat the ssh-add then the key does get added and I can ssh into github.
Now I exit from the ssh connection to my server and ssh back in and I can't ssh into github anymore!
if I login to my remote server and then cd into my .ssh directory and ssh into github then it all works fine
I guess there is a problem with locating the key and for some reason the agent isn't funcitoning correctly.
Her is a pastie with more details..my .bashrc, permissions etc.
