Also you can see something like this in you terminal:
error: object file .git/objects/03/9e5691db59686e2afce2da700853398c961b4a is empty
After the computer crashes, git showed:
$ git status error: object file .git/objects/03/9e5691db59686e2afce2da700853398c961b4a is empty error: object file .git/objects/03/9e5691db59686e2afce2da700853398c961b4a is empty fatal: loose object 039e5691db59686e2afce2da700853398c961b4a (stored in .git/objects/03/9e5691db59686e2afce2da700853398c961b4a) is corrupt
Git is a control version system. So if we can’t fix internal git structure – we can’t access other versions of our project. Basicly we can run git command:
If it doesn’t work, we can get the version of remote server (always synconize your local repository with remote!):
$ rm -rf .git
$ git init
$ git remote add origin REMOTE_SERVER_ADDRESS
$ git fetch
$ git reset --hard origin/master
It will override your local files and replace it with files from remote server.
What have we learned today?
- Commit all changes (one simple feature = one commit).
- Always push our commits to the remote server.
- Each big feature should have it’s own branch (syncronized with the remote server).
