update-server-info on the server?

I switched my login info into my Kiln repository from SSH to HTTPS and get the following error:

"git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false push -v --tags origin develop:develop master:master

Pushing to https://********.kilnhg.com/Repo/Repositories/Group/**********

fatal: https://********.kilnhg.com/Repo/Repositories/Group/*********/info/refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

Completed with errors, see above"

(I replaced some URL info with ****)

which seems to be indicating a login error. SourceTree can login to the Kiln server though as it seems to retrieve the list of repositories ok in the 'Repositories on all of your hosted accounts'.

How do I go about diagnosing the issue here?

Hi Didier,

It sounds like when you changed from SSH to HTTPS you may have accidentally changed the repository name slightly or the account name in the URL. Just double check by using Kiln that the repository URL is correct. The following image shows where you can find it:

Make sure it's that exact URL and try again if it even slightly differs.

In some cases you can't just switch the "ssh://" to "https://".


I could have sworn I cut and pasted it right from there but obvisouly this is user error on my part.

The path to the git repository via HTTPS is /Code/ and not /Repo/

Thanks for the quick response.
