    Moodle updating via GIT

    anyone had any experience updating moodle via GIT?
    I've just installed GIT on our ubuntu server, went through the documentation here: Git for Administrators - MoodleDocs

    but when after i browse to the existing website where moodle 2.3 is running, and do git pull, i get: fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

    any ideas?
    Also how do I update the core files from a mdlfix, this one: [#MDL-34328] Browser Unresponsive when editing turned on for large courses Moodle 2.3+ - Moodle Tracker

    thanks

    once you have performed git clone, you will need to change directory to the moodle folder so you can then do a git pull.

    In regards the adding bug fixes, you can branch on the latest version of 2.3 which is updated weekly.
    I wouldn't apply that fix as its still classed as unresolved so could potentially cause other issues.

    yes i tried that but thats where i get : fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

    is it because the initial install wasnt from git?
