Permission denied when connecting Amazon EC2 with GIT trought SSH
I am using Amazon EC2 instance as dev server and I am trying to git clone my repository from bitbucket to Amazon EC2 instance. What I like to do is add a post hook commit for bitbucket, so any changes made to the repository are automatically reflected in my dev server.
I am connecting a ssh trough to an Amazon EC2 instance, but when I try to git clone a repository, I get the following error:
Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
I have found many solutions for this problem, but none of them work!
Here's what I've tried so far:
created elastic ip and linked to my instance
-modulate security group to allow incoming network traffic
- download generated pem key from amazon and generate private and public key using puttygen
- uploaded the public key (id_rsa.pub) and the pem key to my .ssh folder and changed the permissions to 600
- added public key for bitbucket deployment keys
- added public key to authorized_keys file on amazon
-created config file inside .ssh folder and added the following lines inside:
Host bitbucket.org Hostname bitbucket.org User ubuntu IdentityFile ~/.ssh/amzon_key.pem
-tried to git clone the repository as root user
I use putty on windows.

Solution by OP.
What I did to get it working:
-deleted config file from .ssh folder
-created new private and public keys using puttygen (dsa - 1024)
- added public key to bitbucket deployment keys
- added public key to amazon authorized_keys file in .ssh folder
- upload keys to .ssh folder and set permissions to 600
-added bitbucket.org to the list of known_hosts file in the .ssh folder
