  • I get an error when trying to clone a private git repo from

    Public repos from both gitHub and bitbucket work fine.
    I do clone over HTTPS:
    $ git clone

    When I do this locally, I'm asked for my password and all works fine. On the cloud, it directly fails with the following error:
    Cloning into 'my_repo'...
    git-remote-https: /lib/ no version information available (required by git-remote-https)
    fatal: could not read Password for '': Permission denied

    (I changed «username» and «my_repo». Just didn't want to publish that here)

    Any recommendations?
    • Maybe you can try cloning using SSH / public key?

      • I just got an answer from MODX support:

        When you're logged into SSH on your Cloud, you can access a private repo by including your username and password in the URL like this:

        git clone

        @jeroen Cloud does not yet support ssh pull/push via git. I guess, that rules out using a key.
