I am still getting this error message when I try to move my project tree on to git repo.
I checked the permissions of my directory with this project and these are set on 777. In the terminal in the directory with my_project I set:
and then if I try
git add .
git commit -m "first upload"
so I'll get the error
fatal: Unable to create '/path/my_proj/.git/index.lock': File exists.
If no other git process is currently running, this probably means a
git process crashed in this repository earlier. Make sure no other git
process is running and remove the file manually to continue.
I tried to create a new repo and there to commit it, but unfortunately still the same error message.
What is the cause of the problem?
