Local repository shared by multiple people?

Hello, I am very new to source tree and this might be answered before but if it is, I couldn't find it. So here we go;

I want to work on a project with my friend. We have a small office-like place, we both have a computer and there is 1 server we use to share files easily. Both computers are connected to that server disk. So what I want to do, create a project on that server so, when I make a change on my computer and push it to the server, he can pull from the server to his own computer and keep working. 

Here is a demonstration if needed;


Note, I tried creating a repository on server, cloning it to my computer, making a change on my computer and pushing it to server (was just a text file to see if it works). It gave me a lot of error. Something about "ignoreBranch".

Hi! For troubleshooting purposes, have you tried pushing from the command line? If you're getting errors in the command line too, then the problem is not in Sourcetree and we'll need to find what's wrong. 

If the command line is working and you only get the error in Sourcetree, then we'll need more info to understand what's happening?:

- Is your friend also getting an error when trying to push?

- Can you be more specific about the error you're getting? Can you copy it here or send a screenshot?

- Are you using Windows or Mac? Which version of Sourcetree are you using?

Let us know!


Hi, thanks for quick answer. 

So, I create have a server, which is, I create a repository on there called TestRepoOnSW, after that, I go to my source tree and clone that repository to my computer, which is named as TestRepoOnMyComputer. Then I make a change on my computer, I add an empty .txt to the repository on my computer and try to push it.

Here is the error;

-I am sorry I do not know how to push from command line. I am very, very new to it. So sorry :)

-Haven't tried to push from my friends computer because I want it to work on mine before I set it up to my friends computer.

-I am using windows and Sourcetree version of

Thanks in advance.
