  2. Create an .ssh directory (if it's not existing) with permissions of 700 (chmod; Full permissions for the user creating this directory).
  3. Check out tutorial: Generating SSH keys, if You didn't do that before.
  4. Upload id_rsa file that contains a private key to access the repository to the .ssh directory. The permission for this file after uploading should be 600 (chmod; read and write for the user who creates it). Additionally, the id_rsa file should not have additional password protection.
