Ios – Mac OS X Keychain Access: “A default keychain could not be found” error

ioskeychainmacos

I am trying to sign an iPhone app for publishing, so I am following the instructions to do so. Anyhow, when creating my Certificate Signing Request I get this error from Keychain Access: "A default keychain could not be found"

I found no help on Google concerning this issue – can anybody help?

Thanks!

Sounds like you're missing your login.keychain. Either that, or you somehow un-set it as default. Look at your Keychains list in Keychain Access (View->Show Keychains). Do you have "login"? And is it bold? If either of those answers was "no", that's your problem. If you don't have a login keychain, go ahead and create one (File->New Keychain). If you don't have a bolded keychain, right-click your "login" keychain and there should be a menu item 'Make Keychain "login" Default'.
