It looks like I messed up my postgres db and have to reinstall everything anew. The problem is that I didn’t had every repo checked out on my laptop. I still have the old repos in the git directory in the old gitea path. Is there a way to restore these?
Ok, it was fairly easy.
I just took those repos. For exampe:
Then I just did an
git clone bla.git and I was done. Now I can push them to my newly created repos.
Always keep automated backups and encrypt them locally with public-key cryptography such as gnupg. Keep one copy in the cloud and a second on a reliable medium you have physical access to. This is to mitigate the possibility of loss.
