Please try connecting to your host via ssh in command line - does it help?

Nope, I connected through the terminal and when it still pops up when I push to the remote

What SSH do you use? cygwin?

Also, when re-connecting from terminal multiple times, does it ask for a key?

and one more question: what is the Settings | Version Control | Git | SSH executable option value?

That setting is the built-in, when I connect from the desktop I use PuTTY, but I used the built in one from phpstorm. when reconnecting it doesn't ask for a key

windows 8, but the problem occurs on windows 7 as well

can you check if your host is added to ~/.ssh/known_host?

that's a question:) Most probably in c:/users/<your name>/.ssh folder. But you can try searching for this file on your disk

I can't find the file, only thing I could find is the sshkey.tcl that belongs to git

do you have .ssh folder anywhere on your disk? If yes, where is it located and what files it contains? Also, please, can you attach your idea.log?
