Git Reset

reset command is used when moving the repository back to a previous commit, regardless of any changes made after that commit.

Step 1: Find the previous commit

git revert

Step 2: Move the repository back to that step:

git reset

Git Reset Find Commit in Log:

Let’s search for the point we want to return to. To complete this task, we need to go through the log.

Using the –oneline option will help us avoid going through the long list, which gives just one line per commit showing:

  • The first seven characters of the commit hash –are used to refer to in our reset command.
  • the commit message.

Let’s find the point that we want to reset to:

[user@localhost] $ git log –oneline
