I would like to know what people would suggest as a good way to add a deployment key to a remote server, so that it may checkout a private git repo.
I've been trying to deploy an application with Capistrano but keep getting failures with the SSH keys I believe when attempting to checkout the repository the application is linked to.
I have tried Agent Forwarding but I think I might be better just adding a deployment key to each remote server and then adding this key to the repository.
How best would I go about doing this? I'm looking for a few simple commands to run off against each remote server.Answer1:
I think yo want to copy the users' public keys to the server and then add'em to the ssh, right?
To do that you need to do the following:
Copy keys to server
copy from my machine to a remote machine:
scp key_name.pub git@serverIP:key_name.pub
Then cat it to the authorized_keys file
cat key_name.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys
