Pushing a new branch in GIT

I am using GIT, and I have created a new branch (named

) on my local (one that doesn't exist on the repository). Now, I have made some changes to my original project (master) files and committed all those changes in this new branch. What I would now like to do is push this new branch to the remote repository. How can I do that? If I just run
git push
while I am on the branch
, will this push the entire branch to the repo. I don't want my changes to be pushed to master. I just want to push this new branch to the main repository.

Yes. It'll prompt you to set the upstream.


git branch --set-upstream origin yourbranch

It's same for everything except for the branch name. Follow the on screen guidelines.
