A good day,
When I do the command 'git reset --hard HEAD~2' in my local branch, everything in my local branch is indeed set back 2 commits.
So if I git 'git status' i am behind two commits by the remote branch. But the whole point is to reset the remote branch back 2 commits as well.
The documentation says this about it: "Eventually, such dangling commits will be pruned through the garbage collection".
But, still hours after doing the git reset, the remote branch is still unchanged, and my local branch is still 2 commits behind. Then, the only way is to do git pull to make things even again.
What am I missing here? I just want the remote AND local branch to be resetted an 'x' amount of commits.
I am looking forward to some answers. Many thanks in advance!
Hi Bart! After you perform the git reset in your local branch you need to push these changes to the remote repo. You can do this by using
git push --force to force push the change.
git push --force
Once you push your changes Bitbucket will automatically run an aggressive
git gc to rewrite the history and reflect your change, this can take up to 60 minutes. If the gc doesn't happen, let us know.
Hope that helps :)
