Why is github permission denied after adding deploy keys?

Rails • Asked by Ethan Groat

I followed every single tutorial, and tried multiple different methods of authenticating my server's access to the github repo. All of it results in the same error, permission denied.

Last few lines after running cap roduction deploy:

  INFO [4dcb4df3] Running /usr/bin/env git ls-remote HEAD as ethan@

 DEBUG [4dcb4df3] Command: ( export RBENV_ROOT="$HOME/.rbenv" RBENV_VERSION="2.6.3" GIT_ASKPASS="/bin/echo" GIT_SSH="/tmp/" ; /usr/bin/env git ls-remote HEAD )

 DEBUG [4dcb4df3] Permission denied (publickey).

 DEBUG [4dcb4df3]   fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

I'm going quite insane. This stuff is unjustly difficult to set up, and there needs to be a more comprehensive guide. I followed both capistrano's and github's guides to the letter.
