How to change a remote’s URL GIT

 

The git remote set-url command changes an existing remote repository URL.

Tip: For information on the difference between HTTPS and SSH URLs, see “Which remote URL should I use?

The git remote set-url command takes two arguments:

  • An existing remote name. For example, origin or upstream are two common choices.
  • A new URL for the remote. For example:

    • If you’re updating to use HTTPS, your URL might look like:

    • If you’re updating to use SSH, your URL might look like:

 

Switching remote URLs from SSH to HTTPS

  1. Open Git Bash.

  2. Change the current working directory to your local project.

  3. List your existing remotes in order to get the name of the remote you want to change.

  4. Change your remote’s URL from SSH to HTTPS with the git remote set-url command.

  5. Verify that the remote URL has changed.

The next time you git fetchgit pull, or git push to the remote repository, you’ll be asked for your GitHub username and password.
