Q . Remove a file from a Git repository without deleting it from the local filesystem (working copy).Richa ojha. asked, Jun 27 ' 2016
My initial commit contained some log files. I've added
*log to my
.gitignore, and now I want to remove the log files from my repository.
git rm mylogfile.log
will remove a file from the repository, but will also remove it from the local file system.
How can I remove this file from the repo without deleting my local copy of the file?
git rm --cached mylogfile.log #For a directory: git rm --cached -r mydirectory
