Github understanding

Helo,

im trying to use github in phpstorm. since i do not use github that much so i think i started with a wrong approach. i cloned the project via the tools "check out from version control" tab. i checked out via https which i think is the first error i made because i cant commit any changes - nothing happens? i read somewhere that github will allow pushing changes only via ssh. i tried to change the git config settings to ssh connection but the problem is that the connection is using the wrong ssh key since i have another one for another project. before i start wrecking my brain - whats the proper way of using github? any tutorials that are actually readable out there?

thanks

Hello,

You may start with GitHub help pages: http://help.github.com/
They are quite simple and informative.
Probably, better to set up GitHub from the command line, check that everything works, and then move to PhpStorm.

Upload your existing public ssh key to github, because git will see only 1 key: id_rsa.pub
https://github.com/settings/ssh

i did that already with the key. but somehow after sometime everything worked. i didnt change nothing in my configuration. strange maybe the github connection timeout in phpstorm is too low or something?!
