I have a public repo on Github. I want to replicate/copy it and work on a new project based on the current repo. But I dont want to affect the current repo. I tried to Fork it using the GitHub's web UI but, it didn't do anything.
I appreciate your help.
I don't think you can fork your own repo.
Clone it and push it to a new repo is good but you need to:
git clone https://github.com/userName/Repo New_Repo cd New_Repo git remote set-url origin https://github.com/userName/New_Repo git remote add upstream https://github.com/userName/Repo git push origin master git push --all
See the all process described at "Fork your own project on GitHub".
