Remote commands

Creating an empty project on a remote machine

For first import into a GIT server for example:

mkdir -p ~/git/yourproject.git
cd ~/git/yourproject.git
git --bare init

And then on the local machine:

mkdir yourproject
cd yourproject
git init
git remote add origin ssh://username@yourcheaphost.com/~/git/yourproject.git
touch .gitignore
git add .
git commit -m "Initial Commit" 
git push origin master

and add this to your .git/config in your project.

[branch "master"]
  remote = origin
  merge = refs/heads/master

Push your developer commits to server

git push origin master

Get a copy of a project

git clone gitservername:proj1 proj1

Update my local copy with the server's copy

git pull

Get server's copy from a new machine

git clone ssh://[<user@>]yourcheaphost.com/git/yourproject.git
