command prompt fatal error

Recommended Posts


I am in developer mode and made a very simple change to test, I properly pushed and after everything loads I get "fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly" then after it says everything is up to date. I see no changes made in my original site. What does this mean and why can't I see my changes?

It happens when you have a large file in your git repository. It's pretty well documented here:


This worked for me (setting it to 10MB) :

git config --global http.postBuffer 10485760

Just find the biggest file in your repository (e.g. using OminDiskSweeper or similar), add a bit extra (e.g. 1MB) and multiply its size in MB by 1048576.
