I ran into the following Git errors today when adding a new project to an existing Git repo.
$ git pull
fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories
The initial steps I took to add my project the existing repo were the following.
- git init
- git add .
- git commit – m “comment”
- git remote add origin <repo url>
- git remote -v
- git push origin master
For what ever reason I was forced to do a reset –hard. After this, I tried a pull and encountered the unrelated histories error. (ODD)
Solution: git pull –allow-unrelated-histories
