Howto avoid subfolder with remote push [message #1789997] Fri, 01 June 2018 20:38 Go to next message

This might be a newby question:

My web hosting provider offers git push/pull access from my local computer. This works generally fine using EGit from Eclipse.

However, in the server destination folder, a subfolder is being created with the same name as my local project folder.

Is there a way to avoid this subfolder by configuration of the remote/local mapping? I would like to push the files contained in my Eclipse project to the server destination without a subfolder.

Thanks in advance.

If by remote/local mapping you mean the push refspec: no, that cannot be used for this.

Examine the working tree of your git repository (in EGit's "Git Repositories" view, or on disk). I bet you'll find that you have something like

and on the server things end up not at but at

So just get rid of that local "myWebsite" folder:

1. Delete the myWebsite project in Eclipse (don't delete it on disk).
2. On disk, move all files up one level and delete the then empty myWebsite folder:

3. Refresh the "Git Repositories" view
4. Choose "Imports projects..." in the context menu of the repository in the "Git Repositories" view
5. Commit
6. Push
