Git ubuntu problems

Hey could anyone maybe write a tutorial on how to setup git server and client properly? i have done the tutorials of digital ocean but i cant seem to push back to server etc…

What im doing: I create a new folder (test) go to the folder then do git init i add some test files, add and commit them.

Locally i can clone the remote git but when i do changes and commit them locally and then try to push i get errors.

To ssh://root@myip/~/git/lsmts ! [remote rejected] master -> master (branch is currently checked out) error: failed to push some refs to ‘ssh://root@myip/~/git/lsmts’

Anyone got any ideas?

You have to clone the bare version of the repo on your droplet: <br><pre>root@myip:~$ git clone --bare lsmts lsmts.git</pre> <br>Then, clone <code>root@myip:lsmts.git</code> locally.

The problems is pushing back to the remote… doesn’t seem to work
