I'm trying to add a local repo to git hub that already existed before I used git, I've added it locally to my git hub desktop GUI but when I try to push it, it says the repository doesn't exist.
So exactly how to I upload it to git hub? Tutorial by git itself says what I've already done? https://help.github.com/desktop/guides/contributing-to-projects/adding-a-repository-from-your-local-computer-to-github-desktop/
There doesn't seem to be much help out there. To make things 100% clear,the files exist on my desktop, how do I get them inside of a new github repo without having to create the repo in a different location, copy the files over to the enw location, modify my existing paths to that old location, and then push to the github servers. Surely there is an easier way?
