How to initialize a new repo from an existing local repo?

I already have a local git repo on my disk.

Now what I'd like to do is to create a remote for it in my Bitbucket account – the code right now has NO remotes.

However, in the options to import an existing repository I must provide an URL, I see no options to simply upload my local repo.

If I create the repo, I end up with another master branch on remote, which of course collides with the one I already have locally.

What is the best way to solve this?

To answer my own question in the hope that it may help others:

* Create a new repo, and choose No on the option "Include .gitignore?"

* After that, the information to configure your remote is displayed, and you can just push it.


Sometimes comfort really get into the way.
