Git: 'configure' is not a git command. See 'git --help'

I am new to using Github, I started using git on my new MBP 2019. It has the following version of git installed:
$ git --version
git version 2.24.3 (Apple Git-128)

When I run git configure, it is showing the following error:
$ git configure
git: ‘configure’ is not a git command. See ‘git --help’.

I installed newer version of git using brew and that also didn’t come with configure command:
$ git --version
git version 2.29.2

$ git configure
git: ‘configure’ is not a git command. See ‘git --help’.

What am I missing here ? I am trying to update username & password from terminal for using another GitHub account I own but I am stuck now. I didn’t find any hidden files also to update credentials. Can someone please help ?

I assume git config is what you want. :wink:

Oops… my bad. I completely missed that. Thanks for pointing it out.
For some reason my brain read it as “git configure” in all places I looked at online, now I look at them they all say “git config” :slight_smile:
Also another reason I was clueless was due to “git help” not showing “config” as part of help text so I couldn’t catch my mistake.
At any rate, you saved my day otherwise I could still be struggling with it. Thanks.
