can't push a new repo
What I did:
mkdir knowledge_base cd knowledge_base git init
( create some files )
git add <some files> git commit -m 'initial'
until here all is perfect
now a do:
git remote add origin ssh://gitzfrdh@ex/home/gitzfrdh/gitrepos/knowledge_base git push --set-upstream origin master
fatal: ‘/home/gitzfrdh/gitrepos/knowledge_base’ 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.
Yes, I know that the repo did not exist. My idea is to push this new one.
Must I first create a bare repo on the server side?
If I execute on the server:
mkdir knowledge_base cd knowledge_base/ git init --bare
and on the client again a:
git push --set-upstream origin master
But I think it is not the intention to have a full excess on the server? I am wrong?
I already read

New git repository error on first push

The command is correct; however, the remote address must point to an initialized Git repository too. It’s a one-time job, though
ssh user@host "git init --bare /your/project/git/my-project.git"
You need to create a bare git repo on the server so that the client git repo has somewhere to push to.
From your example, the add remote tells the client where to push its repo changes to, and expects there to be a repo on the server that matches the added remote.
