Changing Git remote URL updates fetch but not push

I am attempting to change the remote URL of my origin branch in Git. All I want to change is the SSH port. First, listing my remote origins gives me this:

git remote -v

origin (fetch)
origin (push)

Then, I run the set-url command to change my origin URL:

git remote set-url origin ssh://    (XX is my port #)

Now, I can fetch without issue, but pushing my branch to origin doesn’t work, because the push URL didn’t change. Listing my remotes again I get this:

git remote -v

origin  ssh:// (fetch)
origin (push)

Why did my set-url command only change the fetch URL?

  • One Solution collect form web for “Changing Git remote URL updates fetch but not push”

    From git-remote manual:

           Changes URL remote points to. Sets first URL remote points to matching regex <oldurl> (first URL if no <oldurl> is given) to <newurl>. If <oldurl> doesn’t match any URL,
           error occurs and nothing is changed.
           With --push, push URLs are manipulated instead of fetch URLs.

    So you should additionally execute:

      git remote set-url --push origin ssh://
