Hi @cassymyers,

Probably the simplest thing, unless you have already created some history you want to save, would be to just delete the .git subdirectory and redo the init in the correct directory.

Another suggestion would be

mv .git to/proper/path 
cd to/proper/path
project$ git add src
project$ git commit -a

Kind regards, Kalin
