Fixing the "this is larger than GitHub's recommended maximum file size of 50.00 MB" error
I received an interesting error a couple days ago when I tried to push to GitHub:
It turns out that I accidentally committed a MySQL dump file that I grabbed from our development server. GitHub only allows for 100 MB file which is totally understandable but now I'm stuck with a 118 MB file in my repo with no way to push it to GitHub. It turns out with some command line fu you can remove a file completely from a repo:
At which point you can push the file to GitHub.
So I added a new file to a repo today and it turns out GitHub changed from 100 MB to 50 MB. I've updated the title and included this so hopefully people will find it.
