Git - Rename the File and Push

Once you moved the code to Git, you realized as some of the files named incorrectly. Git provided a command to rename the file easily.

Let’s rename about.html file to about-us.html file. First, remove the about.html file, then add the about-us.html file. 

c:\Examples\techExamples>git rm about.html  (it removes the about.html file)

c:\Examples\techExamples>git add about-us.html (it adds new file about-us.html)

Finally, commit the changes and push to Git server repository. 

c:\Examples\techExamples>git commit -m "Rename about.html to about-us.html"

[master 17b8748] Rename about.html to about-us.html
