Git: Rename or Change a Repository URL

If you’re new to Git, this tip will allow you to save some of your precious time.

Open .git/config in your project’s local directory, and, in the category [remote “origin”], modify the url parameter, using the new location or the new repository’s name.


Use this command:

git remote set-url origin <new url>

Note: If you’re using GitHub, you must also rename the project on the platform: Go to the repository’s homepage, click the Admin button and change the name.
