[Gitea] - Problem with uploding large amount of files?
Copy from forum thread
Hello, I registered a while ago and after a few tests I waited till my project is well advanced before I use the service. It appears as I have to upload through the web-interface before I can pull/push on existing projects. If there is a way to push new files from terminal please let me know. Pull then push changes against existing files works.
But after many hours of manual uploading it seems as I reached a limit, which I don’t think is based on size but on number of files.
My account is joborun in git.disroot.org as well.
The nature of the project is free/opensource and it is never going to be a business/commercial anything, it is a new distro based on source. The need for the git is to have it published somewhere but rarely will users use it, except for contributors. The copy of the git content will be local on each user’s machine and updated through a pkg containing the entirety.
Taking it for granted that this is going to be my primary source repository it is listed in every package already as the source.
Responding to the closed thread from above reference:
I can pull and push through git/ssh from terminal but I couldn’t push anything new, I could only update if it was
So I’ve been doing everything through http/browser interface. Most files are small, 1-2 lines of text, no binaries, but there are many of them. On average there might be 5-6 files, and there may be 200 directories. As a tarball all together with support/building scripts it is about 54M
Somehow through the help of a git client, smartgit and trial/error I was able to overcome the problem I had, which was a limit in the web interface of how many files to upload at a time (up to 5).
Somehow, what I couldn't do from the terminal the client did it, adopted ssh key, logged in and synced everything up.
Is that still an issue, (we've upgraded gitea recently)
It was only an issue uploading files through the web-ui, where adding more than 4 or 5 files at the time it was prevented. I perceived it as a limit when I reached a subdirectory that contained more than 4 files and the 5th was dropped.
After I got local git to cooperate and I could pull and push from my repository I never really tried the web-ui again.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
