git fetch insufficient permission for adding an object to repository database .git/objects?
In my repo in my home directory (on an Ubuntu box) I did
I unfortunately got an error about:
insufficient permission for adding an object to repository database .git/objects
There's a gazillion directories in .git/objects and all of them appear to be 775. The few spot checks I did show the files to be 664.
I went and did a
chmod -R 777 .git/objects
which fixed the problem but now I've got a bunch of files 777 on my box and I'm sure that's a no-no.
What should the correct permissions be and how can I easily get all 10 million files and directories set correctly?
Thanks in advance.
Are you the owner of all the files?
chown -R you:you .git
Then chmod them to "normal"
chmod -R u=rwX,g=rwX,o=
