Git Question

Capistrano deploy fails for repo that was moved from github to private git.. stil trying to contact github.. why?

I have a Rails 4 project that started at github and then it was moved to a private git repository. I can work perfectly with the repo (push, clone). I searched for references to the github repo somewhere in the code but none exists.. it must be something related to GIT and how the repository started..

Important: I was able to deploy with this configuration from my private repo until I removed the github one.

Of course I have updated config/deploy.rb

set :repo_url, '/srv/git/project.git'

Running "git remote -v":

origin git@git.server:/srv/git/project.git (fetch)
origin git@git.server:/srv/git/project.git (push)

Log of capistrano run "bundle exec cap production deploy":

00:00 git:wrapper

00:10 git:update
01 git remote update --prune
01 Fetching origin
01 remote: Invalid username or password.

Moved from SVN to GIT not so much ago and a bit confused about this behaviour.. any help apreciated!


You have to change the origin on the server. The easiest way to accomplish this would probably be to SSH into the server, navigate to /home/user/applications/project/repo and:

git remote set-url origin /srv/git/project.git

I don't believe that capistrano will automatically update the remote.
