Git push failure over HTTP for large commit (74MB)
Closed, DuplicatePublic


When one of my colleagues try to push stuff to our repository using windows git client over http, he receives the following error:

$ git push origin master
Username for 'http://phabricator.<removed>': <removed>
Password for 'http://<removed>@phabricator.<removed>':

! [remote rejected] master -> master (n/a (unpacker error))
error: failed to push some refs to 'http://phabricator.<removed>/diffusion

What could possibly go wrong? Is it related to size of the commit? Is there any way to debug why is that?

Who is hosting the repository, Phabricator or an external source? Rough Googling suggests the repository might be corrupt or the disk might be full.

This is hosted by phabricator itself, but repository is actually pretty clean, nobody ever pushed any commit to it in past.

I just tried pushing a new branch "test" and it worked, there is no master yet, but that push he attempts to do should work
