Git push error: "origin does not appear to be a git repository"
I am following the instructions given here to create a Git repository. All went well until the last line:
$ git push -u origin master
fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
I'm using git version 188.8.131.52 on OS X 10.6.8
$ git remote -v
Config file for the repository:
[core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true ignorecase = true
I've had to open sudoers file using sudo visudo command and add the following to it (under # User privilege specification):
git ALL=(ALL) ALL.
Now if I do:
$ git remote add origin /Volumes/500GB/git-repository/myproject.git
it comes back with no error, but I don't see any code in the repository (it has the aforementioned directories like branches, hooks, ...)
If I do:
$ git push -u origin master fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly $ git remote -v origin /Volumes/500GB/git-repository/myproject.git (fetch) origin /Volumes/500GB/git-repository/myproject.git (push)
As it has already been mentioned in che's answer about adding the remote part, which I believe you are still missing.
Regarding your edit for adding remote on your local USB drive. First of all you must have a 'bare repository' if you want your repository to be a shared repository i.e. to be able to push/pull/fetch/merge etc..
To create a bare/shared repository, go to your desired location. In your case:
$ cd /Volumes/500gb/ $ git init --bare myproject.git
See here for more info on creating bare repository
Once you have a bare repository set up in your desired location you can now add it to your working copy as a remote.
$ git remote add origin /Volumes/500gb/myproject.git
And now you can push your changes to your repository
$ git push origin master
Here are the instructions from github:
touch README.md git init git add README.md git commit -m "first commit" git remote add origin https://github.com/tqisjim/google-oauth.git git push -u origin master
Here's what actually worked:
touch README.md git init git add README.md git commit -m "first commit" git remote add origin https://github.com/tqisjim/google-oauth.git git clone origin master
After cloning, then the push command succeeds by prompting for a username and password
Your config file does not include any references to "origin" remote. That section looks like this:
[remote "origin"] url = firstname.lastname@example.org:repository.git fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
You need to add the remote using git remote add before you can use it.
Most likely the remote repository doesn't exist or you have added the wrong one.
You have to first remove the origin and re-add it:
git remote remove origin git remote add origin https://github.com/username/repository
May be you forgot to run "git --bare init" on the remote? That was my problem
When you create a repository in bitbucket.org, it gives you instructions on how to set up your local directory. Chances are, you just forgot to run the code:
git remote add origin https://email@example.com/username/reponame.git
my case was a little different - unintentionally I have changed owner of git repository (project.git directory in my case), changing owner back to the git user helped
I had this problem cause i had already origin remote defined locally. So just change "origin" into another name:
git remote add originNew https://github.com/UAwebM...
git push -u originNew
or u can remove your local origin. to check your remote name type:
to remove remote - log in your clone repository and type:
git remote remove origin(depending on your remote's name)
If you are on HTTPS do this-
git remote add origin URL_TO_YOUR_REPO
To resolving this problem.I just create a new folder and put some new files.Then use these commond.
* git add . * git commit * git remote add master `your address`
then it tells me to login in. To input your username and password. after that
git pull git push origin master
finished you have pushed your code to your github
