I really appreciate your immediate response.
I have already run the command git-update-server-info more than 10
times in my server and also the hook script (post-update) is enabled.
what i notice is whenever i do a git clone the error (warning: remote
HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout)
comes out. I am able to see the folder which is cloned but without any
The .git inside the cloned folder where the /refs/heads/<empty> there
is nothing in it. Hence no contents in the cloned folder.
But when i do a clone using git:// i am able to see everything inside
the cloned folder.
Kindly help as i am new to git.
