Question

Invalid permissions on fresh dokku host

I just created a new dokku one app intall, and it appears something went wrong with the setup.

I created the droplet, visited the IP and completed the dokku setup process. I added my droplet as a remote for my git project and pushed.

› git remote add dokku dokku@myhost.co:hello
› git push dokku master
fatal: 'hello' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I can ssh into dokku@myhost.co as well as root@. I tried creating an app named hello on my droplet, but I still get the same error. I don’t feel I’ve missed any steps in the dokku setup process explained on both the Digital Ocean guide or the dokku documentation. Am I missing something?

Reading more of the documentation, this article helped me: http://dokku.viewdocs.io/dokku/deployment/user-management/#adding-deploy-users

I’m not sure why I was able to ssh in, but unable to git push with the same ssh key, but either way passing a fresh copy of my ssh key to the server did the trick:

# from your local machine
# replace dokku.me with your domain name or the host's IP
# replace root with your server's root user
# USER is the username you use to refer to this particular key
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh root@dokku.me "sudo sshcommand acl-add dokku USER"
