How to clone a private repo from Gitlab?

  • Posted April 20, 2014

I have a webapp I’ve built on my local machine that I want to deploy. I’ve been using a private repo on where I push my changes.

After installing git using apt-get install git-core, I’m trying to make a clone my repo, but am getting this error:

fatal: not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

When I run git update-server-info, I get the error: fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

What am I missing here?

As it turns out, that was just git-speak for the repo not being found, and that there was a typo.
