Change a git repo remote url


I don't often change the remote url address of my git projects but when I do, I almost always google the process. Now, I know where to look

git remote set-url <remote-name> <remote-url>


  • The <remote-name> is the name of the git remote file. e.g origin
  • The <remote-url> is the url to the repo you want to change to. e.g https://github.com/Preshonyee/preshonyee.git

Here's how a real scenario would be:

git remote set-url origin https://github.com/Preshonyee/preshonyee.git
