how can I pull down remote repository data to my local existing folder?
The local existing git folder has the cloned remote repository data from several days ago and I need to update the local git folder in case any changes have been made on the remote repository.
I tried git init, but that messed up the system.
I tried deleting the local git folder, making a new folder and running git clone but that messes up the system.
Any suggestions please?
Thank you for your question.
In order to accomplish what has been asked, please follow the steps:
Configure Git for the first time
git config --global user.name "Administrator" git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
Working with your repository
If you want to simply clone this empty repository then run this command in your terminal.
git clone http://<user>@<gitserver>/repository.git # or git clone ssh://<user>@<gitserver>/repository.git
My code is ready to be pushed
If you already have code ready to be pushed to this repository then run this in your terminal.
cd existing-project git init git remote add origin ssh://<user>@<gitserver>/repository.git git add --all git commit -m "Initial Commit" git push origin master
My code is already tracked by Git
If your code is already tracked by Git then set this repository as your "origin" to push to.
cd existing-project git remote set-url origin ssh://<user>@<gitserver>/repository.git git push origin master
# Update your local repo from the remote (but don't merge): git fetch # After downloading the updates, let's see the differences: git diff origin/master # If you're happy with those updates, then merge: git pull
Please, refer to Git - Reference for further information.
