I see the file is listed on the vps like so: bitcoin-sniffer.git .lastlogin .python_history Now how can I execute the .git, or actually use the files that are within it? I have tried git clone bitcoin-sniffer.git The error: fatal: destination path 'bitcoin-sniffer.git' already exists and is not an empty directory. December 27, 2017 at 2:24 am #36538 Anonymous Answer Generally, the git clone command is followed by an address with ssh or HTTPS path to download a repo. The git command is not run against a *.git “package”. An example would be: bash git clone https://github.com/sebicas/bitcoin-sniffer.git This would download and create a folder by the name bitcoin-sniffer. Within this folder, git commands can be run, like git status.
