I know similar questions have already been asked.
But, I believe my issue is due to a mistake I have previously made and therefore is different: let me explain.
Everything was working smoothly, as I could:
git add .all the files from my local repository.
git commit -m "message here"to add messages to my commits.
git push origin masterto upload my files to GitHub.
git push heroku masterto upload my files to Heroku.
However, at some point, I created a new branch locally called
add-calendar-model in case next steps of the app development would go south…
… which is exactly what happened.
However, despite many attempts, I did not manage to get the initial code — i.e. the code from before I created the new branch — from the
master branch to my local repository.
So, I decided to manually delete all the files from my local repository and
git clone my
master branch from GitHub.
This way, I got all my files back, but now, I cannot push any more to the remote repository.
Any time I try to run
git push origin add-calendar-model or
git push origin master, I get the following error:
fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
I am not very comfortable with Git and GitHub, as you may have guessed by now, and I have to admit that I have no clue about how to fix this.
First, check that your origin is set by running
git remote -v
This should show you all of the push / fetch remotes for the project.
If this returns with no output, skip to last code block.
Verify remote name / address
If this returns showing that you have remotes set, check that the name of the remote matches the remote you are using in your commands.
$git remote -v myOrigin ssh://[email protected]:1234/myRepo.git (fetch) myOrigin ssh://[email protected]:1234/myRepo.git (push) # this will fail because `origin` is not set $git push origin master # you need to use $git push myOrigin master
If you want to rename the remote or change the remote’s URL, you’ll want to first remove the old remote, and then add the correct one.
Remove the old remote
$git remote remove myOrigin
Add missing remote
You can then add in the proper remote using
$git remote add origin ssh://[email protected]:1234/myRepo.git # this will now work as expected $git push origin master
