Removing commit history from git/github
Resetting commit history by replacing main branch
From your terminal run:
# Checkout from your main branch git checkout --orphan latest_branch # Add all the files git add -A # Commit your changes git commit -am "commit message" # Delete the original branch git branch -D master # Rename the current branch to master git branch -m master # Finally, force update your repository git push -f origin master
And you are done.
