    • SQLite [x]
  • Can you reproduce the bug at https://try.gitea.io:
    • Yes (provide example URL)
    • No
    • Not relevant [x]
  • Log gist:

I’ve installed gitea according to

on my raspberry model 3 but I find that the Quick Guide shows in the web interface regardless of the commits. I’ve checked that the commits are indeed there. The repositories (under /home/git/gitea-repositories) are not mounted on a different file system.

I’ve tried to manually run the

Resync pre-receive, update and post-receive hooks of all repositories.

Reinitialize all missing Git repositories for which records exist

Synchronize external user data

but to no avail. How can I solve the problem of a non-updating Code
page? Thank you in advance.


Hey there,

could you try creating a repository and ticking the Initialize this repository with selected files and template option at the bottom of the repo creation form? And then try to push something to the repos? Also, could you please enable logging in your custom/conf/app.ini? Should be a simple

MODE = console
LEVEL = Debug

in the [log] section.


Yeah, that was it.

Since I have an existing repo, I first have to git pull --allow-unrelated-histories because otherwise I get fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories. Only then can I run git push origin master.

Thanks for your help.
