Delete git repository histories

Spread the love

One of my site git file became too big, and took long time to clone.
So I had to clean it.

1. Checkout

git checkout --orphan latest_branch

2. Add all the files

git add -A

3. Commit the changes

git commit -am "commit message"

4. Delete the branch

git branch -D master

5. Rename the current branch to master

git branch -m master

6. Finally, force update your repository

git push -f origin master

To be a good house keeper.
