heroku: [solved] failed to push some refs

Just a Promotion : Experience reliable hosting with interserver

Solution

I want to assume that you are getting this error message: *error: failed to push some refs*
when you are trying to push your app to the remote git repository on heroku ?

Reason:

It maybe that your github default branch is main and not master or vice versa.

So to solve this problem you will have to use your actual github default branch. In my case, I got the error because my github default branch isn't master but main.

So in my situaton instead of git push heroku master do:

git push heroku main 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Yours could be otherwise:

git push heroku master
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

But you have to confirm from your github repository
