Git hook creation – You are on a branch yet to be born
So im setting up a git and following this guide http://toroid.org/ams/git-website-howto.
I get as far as this command:
# GIT_WORK_TREE=/home3/trncprop/public_html/tpcapp git checkout -f
And get the following error message
fatal: You are on a branch yet to be born
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance! Littleswany

That command is supposed to be in a hook, not to be executed directly in
$ cat > hooks/post-receive #!/bin/sh GIT_WORK_TREE=/var/www/www.example.org git checkout -f $ chmod +x hooks/post-receive
That means you need to create a website.git/hooks/post-receive file, with that command in it, and make it executable.
That will allow you to push commits top that bare repo (website.git), which will trigger the post-receive hook, and will checkout the repo content into a different working tree.
