- Create a new repository on GitHub
- At your local computer , change the current working directory to your local project.
- Initialize the local directory as a Git repository:
$ git init
3. Add the files in your new local repository. This stages them for the first commit.
$ git add .
4. Commit the files that you’ve staged in your local repository.
$ git commit -m "First commit"
5. Go to your github repository to get your repository’s URL
6. Setting Global Git Username and Email
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
- In the Command prompt, add the URL for the remote repository where your local repository will be pushed
$ git remote add origin <remote repository URL>
# Sets the new remote
$ git remote -v
# Verifies the new remote URL
- Push the changes in your local repository to GitHub if there is a remote branch called
mainif that’s what you’re using)
$ git push origin main
- if error while push like this
( ! [rejected] main -> main (fetch first)
error: failed to push some refs to ‘https://github.com/jj449/edu.soshow.app.git’
hint: Updates were rejected because the remote contains work that you do
hint: not have locally. This is usually caused by another repository pushing
hint: to the same ref. You may want to first integrate the remote changes
hint: (e.g., ‘git pull …’) before pushing again.
hint: See the ‘Note about fast-forwards’ in ‘git push — help’ for details.
that means you need to pull rebase first .
$git branch — set-upstream-to=origin/main main
$git pull — rebase
Now you can push to remote again :
$git push origin main
pushed successfully! You did it !
Error handling :
In case you input wrong origin , you can remove it then add a correct one :
check current git :
git remote -v
you will see the output like this
“origin” is the name you need to remove it .
Now remove it by : git remote remove origin
Then re add a correct one.
if you encounter problem when you $git push origin main :
error: failed to push some refs to ‘https://github.com/jj449/edu.soshow.app.git’ , probably because your local git branch named ‘master’ but it is named ‘main’ on github.
If so , you should change local branch first before you push .
$git branch -m master main
