Once I pushed with a Hugging Face secret in my code it will never allow me to push again to Space even if I erase it and revert commit

That is the problem basically, I put my hf key in my code by mistake, I know I can’t so I removed it, but now even with it removed it still doesn’t allow me to push.

I reverted those commits and still didn’t allow me to push.

It seems that it will never allow me again.

My solution has been to restart the repository every time it happens, I have restarted repositories 3 times now! I beleive there must be another solution!

And the thing I’m using my hf secret in my code for testing purpouses but if I forget to erase it and push, and if you do so, well that repo is doomed forever and I can’t push never ever again.

Maybe I’m doing something wrong or it is an obvious solution but I can’t see it, can you help me?

This is the output after trying to push even once the secret is erased and saved and commit the correction, it still displays the same mistake.

If you put for hf secret by mistake your repo is doomed forever or what i’m doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

You need to hard reset the commit.
and if you are using github also then do below steps

git reset --hard HEAD~n
git push origin <branch_name> --force
