Context / Information
I installed gitlab on ubuntu 12.04 as described on this official page: https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/blob/stable/doc/installation.md
After I installed, I was able to access the web interface at
http://machine_ip:3000 with the credentials:
On my machine, I have the following users: - git (that was set with no password as in the tutorial) - gitlab (set auto as in the tutorial) - my_username (the normal user used by me as root)
In the web interface of gitlab, when requested, I generated a public rsa key on my_username and pasted it there.
I then proceeded to create a repository in /home/my_username/test with git init and git remote add origin as in the tutorial. When I'm trying to push my commit, I get the following error:
To git@localhost:test.git ! [rejected] master -> master (non-fast-forward) error: failed to push some refs to 'git@localhost:test.git' To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected Merge the remote changes (e.g. 'git pull') before pushing again. See the 'Note about fast-forwards' section of 'git push --help' for details.
I'm telling you all this to have a better understanding of what I've tried to achieve and what error messages I'm getting.
On a developer's machine, I installed putty, pageant and puttygen and msysgit. I generated a key that was associated with a new user in gitlab's interface. Also, I set GIT_SSH to use plink in order to have msysgit use pageant (which is serving the key for connection).
I am able to connect to git@machine_ip using no passwords, so the key is added to authorized_keys in git.
However, when I try to clone the repository with source location git@machine_ip:test.git I'm getting the following error message:
fatal: 'test.git' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
I don't know what I'm getting wrong here. Am I supposed to do something different (creating a new project, setting a repository differently, adding a new user and their key in gitlab) etc.
Can you please provide some help?
