Could you give clearer instructions as to how to do this / avoid the error?

  8. Thanks. I did as you suggested. But now when “Cloning … ” pops up it then throws a “Can’t open git-upload pack” error. It creates .git folder in my custom project directory but fails to clone the contents. I am able to clone this repository from anywhere else.
