git push dokku master requires password

I’ve got Ubuntu 14.04 droplet. I try to push the app to dokku repo, but it requests password, which I don’t have. What I do: ssh git clone git remote add dokku dokku@my_hostname:my_app

And it requires:’s password:

I’ve seen people suggesting doing following: cat ~/.ssh/ | ssh root@my_hostname “sudo sshcommand acl-add dokku [description]” - I tried running it from my computer (not on root@my_hostname) - but it didn’t help.

What could be the problem? Any ideas on how to troubleshoot?

I followed the command line

cat ~/.sshauthorized_keys/ | ssh root@{droplet_ip} "sudo sshcommand acl-add dokku admin"

When I do , git push dokku master Password is still asked.

dokku@{droplet_ip}'s password: 

So what did you exactly do ?

Solved myself. Didn’t understand that git push dokku master has to be done from local, not from server.
