In software (JDK, GIT, idea, mysql, Navicat… After the installation, the download of the project will start.

Download item:

Direct translation is “remote repository cannot read”.

Why can’t I read it?

1. Unable to link to server

Confirm that you can connect to the server.

2. SSH mode used in Git integration in idea

b. Add key
