Question

dokku - cannot git push my files

  • Posted June 14, 2014

fatal: [name] 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 tried to push files to my server with dokku installed, but this error message appeared. git remote add deploy deploy@my-server-address:dev

where deploy is a user with root privilege of my server, and I first generated a public key on my computer and I copied it to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on my server and finally use command “cat ~/.ssh/authorized_keys | sudo sshcommand acl-add dokku ‘init’” however, this seems not working.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

Is there already a repository set up on the server side with the deploy user? You’d need to run as deploy: <pre> git init --bare dev.git </pre> Check out: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-private-git-server-on-a-vps

For the Dokku “magic” to happen, you need to push to the dokku user: <pre> git remote add deploy dokku@my-server-address:dev git push deploy master </pre>

As message indicates, <code>fatal: [name]</code> your script didn’t defined the repository name (if defined, you may get it name in error script). Let us know if helped :)
