Git Question

git how to add a local repo and treat it as a remote one

I'm trying with

git remote add /home/sas/dev/apps/smx/repo/bak/ontologybackend/.git bak
fatal: '/home/sas/dev/apps/smx/repo/bak/ontologybackend/.git' is not a valid remote name


I'm trying to sync two local repos, I was thinkg aboug configuring as a remote, and then issuiing git pull bak

what would be the best way to do it?

--

sorry, silly me, I've just realized the remote add should be like this

git remote add bak /home/sas/dev/apps/smx/repo/bak/ontologybackend/.git


the name of the remote before the address

Answer

You have your arguments to the remote add command reversed:

git remote add <NAME> <PATH>

So:

git remote add bak /home/sas/dev/apps/smx/repo/bak/ontologybackend/.git

See git remote --help for more information.
