If you are using GIT as your version control and you attempt to do a `git pull` and get a “fatal: Where do you want to fetch from today?” message, you need to do either of the following:
# Specify the remote repo mkdir repo cd repo && git init git pull firstname.lastname@example.org:user/repo.git # Or # Clone the repo mkdir repo cd repo && git clone git pull email@example.com:user/repo.git . git pull
If you are running capistrano to execute commands on another server and get a message that looks like:
No such file or directory - /usr/local/git/bin/git ls-remote firstname.lastname@example.org:user/repo.git master (Errno::ENOENT)
Be sure the user whom you are logging in as through capistrano has access to `git`. To test whether the user has access, ssh as the user and type `git`, if you get a bash error, then set the path in the user’s ~/.bash_profile. Otherwise you should see a list of git options.
