Problem :

I wanted to commit to the Github desktop I am currently using windows 8.1 and this is my first time to commit using Github I only did it  once on my Linux before that, but now I am getting following error 

Commit failed - exit code 128 received,

and below are the commands

git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"

which ideally I should run them in the command prompt. But the issue is I don't know which path I should set up in the prompt before running above listed commands also I am unable to find the git.exe I found the git.bat at below path are they the same?

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\GitHubDesktop\bin\git.bat

Solution :

Actually those config options will be automatically globally set once you have run them. But  I never had to set them by myself as GitHub Desktop automatically did that for me. You need to Go through the settings in the GitHub and confirm that you have defined your details correctly.

If you at all need to run them manually, your GIT.EXE will be found in the GitHub program files folder.

cd \<path to git.exe> git config --global user.email "you@example.com" git config --global user.name "Your Name"

And your issues are solved now.

Problem: I have app servers that I bootstrap together using Chef + some ad-hoc bash scripts. The problem is, when I want to run an update on one of these app servers, I get: Please tell me who you are. Is there anyway to override this behavior so it doesn't error out when name and email are not set?
