http://stackoverflow.com – I have given access to server, and want to clone git repo into my root folder. But when I do git clone it will make me folder with project name, and my project folder is my root. I dont have access to my parent folder my root is /var/www/sites/mysite/ and when I do cloning folder structure will be /var/www/sites/mysite/mysite (HowTos)
