I had to download my Octopress blog to a new machine today and the process of setting up didn’t go as smoothly as I expected. At the end of the day the setup turned out to be simple, and here are the steps:
git clone -b source https://github.com/username/username.github.io myblog cd myblog git clone https://github.com/username/username.github.io _deploy bundle install
In a nutshell, you have to manually add
_deploy folder set to track
branch of your Octopress repository. Otherwise
rake deploy command fails.
