i want to know how i can rid of this 


i can't git push/git add or /git commit 


i want to know how to get rid of this fork bomb 

i have done everything in the past what that tutorial tells me 

when i first set it up

@Coolvibes Reloaded sorry my bad, can you provide more details on your scenario.

Git version that you are using, if you already successfully commited/pushed in the past etc.

@Kurt Klinner yes I've been git adding git committing git pushing 

I'm on phone replying to you I don't know what version

@Kurt Klinner could you help please as would love to have cmd back up and running i cannot update my website 

@Coolvibes Reloaded

@Kurt Klinner how do I find out my git version

@Kurt Klinner i can't even find out my git version as it keeps saying bug forkbomb 

@Kurt Klinner i do not know what i changed last time but

I had the same problem, I reinstalled git and it worked.
