Why are you re-cloning every time?
The git way is to start your deployment from an initial git

        git clone git://your/htdocs.git htdocs

Then updates are simply:

        cd htdocs && git pull origin master

Cloning every time isn't very efficient.

Is the initial project folder empty?
If so this'll clone into current the directory.

        git init
        git remote add origin URL
        git fetch origin
        git checkout -t origin/master

This can also be updated with "git pull origin master".
