Import git repositoy using git or ssh


We have installed the Bitbucket server and we want to import an existing git repository. Our git repository is installed on our own servers using the git protocol. To clone the project we use git://ourserver/project.git.

When we want to link our git repository to Bitbucket we must provide an url like HTTP(s)://. But we don't use the HTTP(s) protocol because we have installed everything locally. We can change it so that we can use ssh but this is still invalid.

Is it possible to import a local git repositoy using the git protocol?

You should be able to just create a new empty repo on Bitbucket.

Then go to somewhere where you have the repo you want to import - it can just be a clone - and add the URL for that repo as a new remote, and then push to that remote

git remote add bitbucket <url>
git push bitbucket
