Requirements: upload local files via git to github remote repository

The source code is as follows

! [rejected] master -> master (fetch first)

error: failed to push some refs to ''

Next, analyze the reasons for this error:

Since the file was created on a remote github, the upload has been unsuccessful.


$ git pull --rebase origin master

Pull the remote file locally and use git push-u origin master
Associate the remote library, and the upload will succeed.

One caveat: If you upload local files through git, it's best not to create files when the github repository is created.

Process for uploading a local file

  1. Under the folder you need to upload, open Git bash here.
  2. git init initializes this folder and generates the.git folder.
  3. git add. (Note that this has a point) Upload all files.
  4. Git commit-m'Description information', submitted to local repository.
  5. git remote add origin name.git, associated remote library.
  6. Git push-u origin master, submitted to remote repository.
