GitLab Remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied. fatal: Authentication failed

Dung Do Tien Nov 09 2021 948


I have a project with Core 3.1 and I managed source code by using GitLab.

Today I changed the password of GitLab and I try to pull code with git pull command and I got an error remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied. fatal: Authentication failed for ''.

 E:\Project\abc\2019\BookManager\v2\BookManager3\bookmanager_v2\QDM.CMS (master -> origin)
λ git pull
remote: HTTP Basic: Access denied
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

I tried to remove the origin and re-add it, like this:

 git remote -v 
git remote remove origin 
git remote add origin [email protected]:user/repo.git  

But it does not work for me.

Do you have any suggestions for me?

    Hi, I got the same issue whenever I change my login password.

    Below is the command I need to run to fix this issue:-

     git config --global credential.helper wincred

    After running this command, it will ask you again to update your username and password.

    And solved the issue for you.

    Because you change the password so you need to re-login into Gitlab. You can do as below:

    1. Open Cmd, run with mode Run As Administrator. (it's required)

    2. Run command 

     git config --system --unset credential.helper

    It will require you to enter your Username & Password. 

    After login success, you can run git pull well for you.

    I hope it is solved for you.
