Whenever eclipse asks for my gitHub log in, it doesn't accept my login info. My password and the personal token both doesnt work.

Make sure you aren't accidentally copying and pasting an extra space at the beginning or end of the token as well. I know that can happen sometimes when copying and pasting.

Hmm. Not sure.

I see you accepted the invitation to join the team on GitHub, so it ought to work.

Maybe try making a new token, and make sure it has repo permissions when you make it.

I can take a look next week, but in the meantime you can always use the git bash commands. It may be better to learn them well anyway.

Or you can use Eclipse for some commands, and just do git push from Git Bash.

Once you receive your personal token, make sure you copy it and don't close that tab, then paste it when it asks for your login. Other than that, make sure spelling is correct.
