I wanted to rename one of my repositories on GitHub, but I got scared when a big red warning said:

  • We will not set up any redirects from the old location
  • You will need to update your local repositories to point to the new location
  • Renaming may take a few minutes to complete

Does anyone have step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish #1 and #2 manually? Or what do I have to do locally?

Simple steps you can follow: 

  1. Going to github.com on my repository
  2. Open Settings Tab
  3. The first option in your settings would be the "Repository Name"
  4. Change the actual one and put the new name you want to give to your repository
  5. Click on Rename
