I recently posted in the codecademy forum that I was unable to push my local repository to my remote GitHub repository.
The problem/issue was that as of August 13, 2021 GitHub would no longer accept your password when pushing to
a new repository. Instead a user is required to create and use a 'personal access token".
But my personal access token was not being accepted. And I kept receiving various errors:
that I was not associated with my GitHub account
Github also said I was using a password still, but I was not, I was using the access token I created
So I created a local repo and a remote repo in Github to try to push to in an attempt to resolve this issue.
It took some patience and time, but I was finally able to use the personal access token and push to GitHub.
So, I wanted to provide my experience fro anyone who might be having the same issue.
