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.

remote: error: refusing to update checked out branch: refs/heads/master
remote: error: By default, updating the current branch in a non-bare repository
remote: error: is denied, because it will make the index and work tree inconsistent
remote: error: with what you pushed, and will require 'git reset --hard' to match
remote: error: the work tree to HEAD.
remote: error: You can set 'receive.denyCurrentBranch' configuration variable to
remote: error: 'ignore' or 'warn' in the remote repository to allow pushing into
remote: error: its current branch; however, this is not recommended unless you
remote: error: arranged to update its work tree to match what you pushed in some
remote: error: other way.
remote: error: To squelch this message and still keep the default behaviour, set
remote: error: 'receive.denyCurrentBranch' configuration variable to 'refuse'.
! [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?
