pull using git failing

I am trying to pull a large site using a slow broadband and Tower. The problem is with GIT. It gets part way through then hangs with an index packet fail eof message

I was  to add

packedGitLimit = 512m
packedGitWindowSize = 512m
deltaCacheSize = 2047m
packSizeLimit = 2047m
windowMemory = 2047m

to the git config file which I did

I was also told to try

git config --global core.compression 0
git clone --depth 1 <repo_URI>

You’ll need to replace “<repo_URI>” with your repository’s URL.

git fetch --unshallow
git pull origin master

Via the command line

That time it reached 98% before it failed which is better than the 57% it was getting to

It there anything else I can try to get it to pull?


Hi @knutsford,

Which bit is failing? The clone, the fetch or the pull?

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly65 MiB | 209.00 KiB/s
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed

Pulling the origin by the look of it

That is what tower says

It seems to move in spurts if that helps. Ie 11% then nothing happens for ages then it will move on

Any of those 3 commands could give that output. Which command are you running that gives this?
