Wrong email address in generated SSH Key (SOLVED)


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m a rookie working my way through Web Development 101. I’m currently on “Project: Build your First Rails Application” and I’m having trouble generating the SSH key.

After confirming that I hae performed the first few steps correctly I’m getting an SSH key that ends with "yourname@example.com" Instead of the email address I entered.

The instructions say the SSH key should end with my email address. I’ve included a screenshot below. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I found the solution soon after posting this.

It forgot to enter my email address in ssh-keygen -C yourname@example.com
