Git authentification failed with no password prompt

August 28th, 2019 No comments

Sometimes when trying to pull/push to a git repo, (on my own server or github), I get something like

fatal: Authentication failed for ‘https://….'”

Authentication failed

Now the problem is that I don’t even get asked for a username and password … sounds a bit stupid if you ask me.

On Windows 10:

  • Press Start, (the windows key)
  • Start typing “Credential Manager” or look for it in the control panel
  • Then select the Windows Credentials
  • Look for whatever website is the one that has your credentials
    Usually something like git:http://...
  • Remove the entry or edit it.
    If you remove it you will be asked for the credentials again.

To delete a local branch 

or you can ‘force’ a delete if you have uncommitted changes
The -D is the same as --delete --force

To delete the branch remotely, simply do …

You can also do it like that if you prefer.

Again, you can use -d.

If you want to delete a remote and local branch, it is easier to first delete the remote branch and then the local branch.

You can then go ahead and prune all the branches.

How to delete/prune old local git branches

October 27th, 2018 Comments off

When you delete a branch with git, and push those changes, you might see that your local repo still has that branch in the list

What this basically does is fetch all the branches and all the ones with a ‘gone’ attribute, (meaning deleted remotely), then we will remove them.

You can view the branches and what their attribute is yourself by typing

Of course, you need to prune the branches on the remote git server

To make sure all is good, just re-list your branches, (local and remote)
