When I try to link my replit repository to my github using version control. It continuously showing me the message Ensure you don't already have a repository on GitHub with the name "caesar-cipher-4-start" and try again.
Earlier I have tried to push the repo to git using the shell commands and It was kinda showing me some sort of warnings when I used the following shell commands:-
That menu is for making a new repository and auto-linking it. You need to actually grab your GitHub repo link (https://github.com/YOURUSERNAME/caesar-cipher-4-start) and add .git to the end (so it’s https://github.com/YOURUSERNAME/caesar-cipher-4-start.git). Then, in the “Enter Remote URL” box, paste that link that has the .git at the end. Then press ✓ Save. Exit out of the git settings menu, and you should see the branch you can commit to.
In that case, you can completely start over by pressing the ⋮ button in the Files part of the editor, then Show Hidden Files. Then delete the folder called .git and it will just reset to before you ran any Git commands.
I have done using the same steps but still my end result is showing the same error continuously.
I have deleted the .git extension and again started from the scratch still the result is same.
What should i do?
Solved the problem with your help. Created a new branch from github virtual section named “side_branch” and pushed the repo on github. Now am able to see all the files on github but in side branch. But this started a new problem somewhat of github pull.
On github it asks me to compare and pull. When i click on it there are more than 8000 files to compare, because of which the github stops working. Please help me with this. How am i suppose to solve this.
