If you ever just created a bare git repository to act as a server-side only repo, and then immediately attempt to push a new local repo up to sync the initial version, and you get an error, it is probably caused by the fact that the path specified is a relative path. if using ssh:// as the protocol, the path must be absolute.
On the server, you typed:
mkdir NewRepo cd NewRepo git --bare init
And on the client you typed:
mkdir NewRepo cd NewRepo git init git add . git commit -m "Initial Revision" git remote add central ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/NewRepo git push --set-upstream central master git push
And as a result you get this error:
password: fatal: '/NewRepo' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
This is caused by not specifying the full path like this:
remote add central ssh://email@example.com/usr/home/NewRepo
