Push local Git repo to new remote including all branches and tags

I have a local Git repo that I would like to push to a new remote repo (brand new repo set up on Beanstalk, if that matters). My local repo has a few branches and tags and I would like to keep all of my history. It looks like I basically just need to do a git push, but that only uploads the master branch. How do I push everything so I get a full replica of my local repo on the remote?


To push all your branches, use either (replace REMOTE with the name of the remote, for example "origin"):

git push REMOTE '*:*'
git push REMOTE --all

To push all your tags:

git push REMOTE --tags

Finally, I think you can do this all in one command with:

git push REMOTE --mirror

However, in addition --mirror, will also push your remotes, so this might not be exactly what you want.
