Initialise your repo 3/7


#1

The first step asks to "use the cd command to navigate to your site’s directory."
However, I have no idea which directory is that and i do not know what am I supposed to type to change to that directory. I am not sure whetheri asked the right question…but i just do not know what to do…
After many attempts, i pressed the get code button, hoping to see the correct code, but there was nothing ! And i just passed the level. However, i think this may affect the lessons later on…so I am asking for help…

How to initalize a Git repository in my site’s directory?
halp

I am having the exact same problem. It says over and over that there is no such directory and will not pass me on the second part, because I can’t get into the directory I am supposed to be in.


#4

Moi aussi. I love codecademy but honestly they need to do some user-testing. I’ve run into multiple problems on this and other lessons.


#5

Yep, I’m having the same issue.


#6

i retried it couple of time ,
$ ls
personal—website --> current directory
$ cd personal—website
$ls
–should list the content of directory eg: feed. xml /index . html etc
$ git init – run the command to initialize git

Initialized empty Git repository in / home/ ccuser/workspace/daw/personal—website/ . git/


#7

that still dosen’t solve it…


#8

Same issue here. Hopefully they’ll notice and fix it soon?


#9

I think it’s a dirty hint that if we want to get an answer we need to go “PRO” Kappa


#10

designslayer86351 is right.

you have to ls / cd your way to personal website. see below.

but really codecademy should fix this its not intuitive at all


#11

This response helped me. Thank you. After ‘cd daw’, I input ‘ls’ and nothing appeared, so i had to type: ‘jekyll new personal-website’
