I want to clone a directory of files to start my first AngularJS project 
and put those files in Apache's htdocs directory with the name of my 
project, e.g., newProject. I've used the ProGit book, a bunch of tutorials, 
and Stackoverflow, and after many hours, still don't have it.

>From all my first attempt messing around, I may have 'polluted' my git. 
With no newProject directory in the htdocs directory (ie, after deleting 
prior copies), I point git at htdocs and get a command prompt ending in 
htdocs. There, I can do a cd newProjects and get a new command prompt 
ending in htdocs/newProject, even though the directory does not exist. A 
git status returns fatal:not a git repo (or any of parent directories): 
.git I have tried rm -rf .git at that prompt and get no git response, just 
another same commmand prompt. What's going on? I have recently deleted git, 
and re-installed a new download, so maybe this is no longer an issue.

When I add a newProject directory to htdocs and do what ProGit says

git clone git://github.com/angular/angular-seed.git newProject

I get fatal:destination path newProject exists and is not empty, even 
though Windows Explorer says it is an empty directory, and a git status at 
that prompt says fatal:not a repo (. . .) .git

When I try the commands at How do you clone a git repository into a 

git clone git://github.com/angular/angular-seed:newProject htdocs

I get fatal:destination path newProject exists and is not empty A git 
status at that prompt returns fatal: not a repository 

I have also tried the above command without the htdocs, and get the same 

Now that I have re-installed a new download of git, I need to do a correct 
command to clone the angular-seed directory of files and get it renamed 
newProject in a directory several levels down in Windows7, called 
apache2/htdos. What do I do?
