To amend or undo the previous Git commit message, you can use the
git commit --amend command. Here’s how you can do it:
Open your terminal or Git Bash.
Navigate to the repository directory using the
Enter the following command:
git commit --amend
This will open your default text editor, displaying the previous commit message. You can modify the message as needed.
Save and close the text editor.
Git will create a new commit with the modified message and replace the previous commit with the new one.
If you’ve already pushed the previous commit to a remote repository, you may need to force-push the changes using:
git push --force
Please note that modifying the commit message changes the commit’s SHA-1 hash, which means it effectively creates a new commit. Therefore, it’s important to be cautious when amending commits, especially if you’ve already shared or pushed them to a remote repository.
