404 error in BitBucket URL


Recently I have been trying to convert my SVN repository to a Git repo. I've used a few online tutorials to get the process down and i've successfully moved the repo to BitBucket.

The question I have then is that the URL BitBucket supplies me with always returns a 404 error. For example the url will be https://xxxxx@bitbucket.org/xxxxx/repo.git.

I looked through the forms and could not find anything addressing this so I figured id ask. Is this an error with the way I set up the repo on BitBucket, or is it something to do with the way I converted my SVN repository? I can access my repo's just fine if I log into BitBucket (which for the time being will work for me as they are all private) but it would be nice to get the URL sorted out.

The URL given on the repository pages is intended for use in your Git client to set it up. The format to get to any repository on Bitbucket is https://bitbucket.org/{username}/{repo slug}. We are aware that the .git bit on our URL can be confusing and is inconsistent with they way other sites allow you to connect. We've opened this issue to change that behavior to be more consistent.


I am trying to use my browser to access the repo. I figured by taking out the .git part at the end it would point to the repository. If I use the command line to clone from the repo the above URL works fine. I believe I just be mistaken when it comes what the URL it gave me is for, originally I thought I could browse to the files but now after reading your comment its pretty clear that its intended for a clone/push/pull.
