Hi@akhtar,

 If you already have a .git/ folder in your repository git init doesn't initialize. So, follow the below given steps.

  • remove .git/ folder

$ rm -rf .git/
  • Initialize git folder again.

$ git init
  • Add remote url.

git remote add origin url
  • Now commit your changes.

git commit -m “Commit message”
  • Finally push in github.

git push -f origin master

Hope this will help you.
