    Hi I've followed the steps in this document,
    Guide to Git - Set Up Access to Private Repositories - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
    All seems to be working, except for last step :

    Step 5 clone the repository
    git clone [email protected]:MyStuff/private-repository.git
    The example command I used as this:
    git clone [email protected]:MyStuff/someusrname.git

    as my private repo is this:
    - Removed -
    but I get this error:
    Cloning into 'someusrname'...
    ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
    fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

    I am running these commands via ssh within CLI (Terminal)
    Can anyone help?

    Hi @auxiliaryjoel

    This sounds like some part of the SSH key generation wasn't done correctly but it also looks like the URL you're listing isn't the full URL for the Private Repository. I've tested these instructions and I can confirm they do work/are accurate. I'd suggest starting over and go step by step ensuring that you're performing each as listed.

    If you're still unable to set this up it may be best to open a ticket with us, which you can do using the link in my signature.
