[solved] Spark-server git clone (permission denied)

So I downloaded the git repository for spark-server-master and tried the initial Quick Install command:
git clone git@github.com:spark/spark-server.git

I get the following error message:

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Any tips on what Iโ€™m doing incorrectly? :wink:

Hey @Elijah - looks like a security issue perhaps because youโ€™re using the SSH mechanism for getting stuff from Github. Try this instead:

git clone https://github.com/spark/spark-server.git


Yep, this command is working for me. I was getting the same error message trying to clone tropicssl from gitorious too :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks @Zach!

Great! I changed the README too so nobody else trips over this
