Trouble with first commit to git repository
I’m new to Git, and have set it up and created my first repository. I’m trying to add a README as the first commit, and I’ve been following the steps on http://help.github.com/create-a-repo/ exactly, but I get stuck on this step:
git push -u origin master
I get this error:
ERROR: username/Hello-World.git doesn't exist. Did you enter it correctly?
I think it is because I got the
git remote add command wrong: I forgot to substitute my username and repository name. Retrying it with the correct arguments gives me:
$ git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:christineh/Hello-World.git fatal: remote origin already exists. $ git push -u origin master Enter passphrase for key '/Users/christinehorvat/.ssh/id_rsa': ERROR: username/Hello-World.git doesn't exist. Did you enter it correctly? fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly'
How can I clean this up and get the correct remote?

You simply need to remove the
origin remote that has the incorrect reference with:
$ git remote rm origin
Then restart the add, and push, and you should be good to go.
$ git remote add origin email@example.com:christineh/Hello-World.git $ git push -u origin master
