issue with publishing to github, lack of understanding about the operations, can someone help?

I am getting errors when trying to publish a project. It is fairly large at 2.2gb but it was fine in the last repo i had with the same files. Now when i try to push i get:

Writing objects: 100% (23181/23181), 2.20 GiB | 1.15 MiB/s, done.

Total 23181 (delta 13786), reused 21538 (delta 12389)

fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly

I added all of the files into the .gitignore, and in the git ls-files the only file is the .gitignore, but it still tries to push the entire 23,000+ objects and im not sure why. I need help.

I think there is a gap in my understanding because from what I thought I understood and what I have tested would show that only the files in the ls-files are pushed, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I thought -rm --cashed would prevent the files from being pushed, but all of the files are still trying to be pushed, so I would like to understand where my gap in understanding is, so that I can troubleshoot more effectively and fix this problem as well.


I have googled around and found multiple proclaimed solutions and things to try, which I have tried, non have led me any closer to fixing the issue.
