If you’ve installed GitLab before or even it is currently in use, you may run into problems like:
$ git clone email@example.com:user/repo.git Cloning into 'repo'... firstname.lastname@example.org's password:
… and after you input the password of
git user on your server:
fatal: 'user/repo.git' 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.
ssh email@example.com and see if you are using an
sh instead of a
bash, and use
pwd to see if you are in someplace like
/var/opt/gitlab (I can’t quite remember the path but it’s clearly not the home directory of
If so, the
ssh may not work properly with the influence of GitLab. You may want to restore the home path back to normal:
systemctl stop gogs usermod -d /home/git git
If it tells you that the
git user is still in use by some process, have a look of what the process is using
htop and you may stop or kill it and restart it back afterwards.
