Connecting local repository to online repository

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been trying to use the

git push -u origin master

command as per the instructions of number 6 in this codeacademy article:
https://www.codecademy.com/paths/computer-science/tracks/cspath-development-skills/modules/learn-git-git-workflow-u/articles/f1-u3-git-setup

But I keep getting this message whenever I try to use it:

fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/......./git_practice.git/': SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

Anyone know what is going on here?

I am having this exact same issue. Were you able to solve this?

Unfortunately, I’ve had no luck solving this issue.

Same here, was just about to post a similar topic.

I thought it was because I had made a small typo when I first created the local git directory (I wrote “mkdir git_pratice”), but even retracing the steps, making the directory with a proper name and retrying yielded the same error.

It’s possible you haven’t configured your local-to-GitHub connection:
