I am using SourceTree to work with one of the repositories I created online at source tree. When I go to clone repository on my Mac and select the repositories from the hosted account, it gives me the following error:
This is not a valid source path / URL
on checking the details, it says:
fatal: unable to access '/usr/local/git/etc/gitconfig': Permission denied
Any idea what might be the issue?
I don't think you understood my question. In the terminal, go to /usr/local/git/etc/, and run "ls -l". Your user account will probably need to be the owner of the gitconfig file, or possibly a member of the group (depending on the premission bits of the file). Do you know the name of your user account or what groups it is a member of?
I suspect this isn't a sourcetree problem, and would be better listed as a question on StackOverflow. If you post there, be prepared to try some things in the terminal to diagnose the problem.
