how does a complete beginner upload an existing git project into Bitbucket Edited

I have an existing project on my PC. How does a complete bitbucket beginner upload it to bitbucket?

I am sure this is documented somewhere, but I cannot get a straight answer. For instance this page https://confluence.atlassian.com/sourcetreekb/migrate-local-repository-to-bitbucket-cloud-951412224.html looks like the appropriate page. But step 1 says:

  1. Open the repository you want to migrate

So I assume that means the local repository on my PC? Then all I am getting is a very bare window. It looks nothing like the window I see in step 2 of the above page. It talks about the "Build status" column or the "File -> Migrate" menu option, but I cannot see anything like that in my Sourcetree window.

Hi @Peter Ballard , welcome to the Community!

I'd start out by looking at this tutorial: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/learn-git-with-bitbucket-cloud

That should provide a nice overview of how repositories on your local computer interact with Bitbucket.

To more specifically address your question, you can use this other resource to add a remote URL to your local repository and then push it up to Bitbucket: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/setting-up-a-repository

Once you have a remote repo setup, you will need to add a remote repo url to your local git config, and set an upstream branch for your local branches. The git remote command offers such utility.
