I am following this MATLAB Youtube video on how to use source control in matlab on Github
I am using MacOS. I first created a private github repository whose https is https://github.com/myUser/repName.git. I then created an empty folder, and, in MATLAB, i right-clicked on the empty folder directory, selected "source control > manage files" and copied the above https repository address under "repository path". MATLAB then asks me to fill in my github username and password, where I use the same ones I key in to access my github on my web browser. However, MATLAB insists that I am using and incorrect username and password, even though they are correct.
Again, I am following exactly the same procedure as in the MATLAB video linked above. I have not configured any of the SSH. Should I do this before following the steps in the video?
