Trouble associating git repository with this site

Hi,

 

I'm pretty new with Git and don't understand it well. I got git installed (Windows). Then I went to Edit > Preferences and associated Git with DW. I restarted DW.

 

I already had XAMPP installed and had made folders in htdocs for each of the 4 sites I intended to clone from the main repositories on Bitbucket. For the next step I thought I'd be able to edit each of my sites in Manage Sites, check the Associate a Git Repository with this Site check box and then clone them. However, when I go to edit site, the Associate a Git Repository with this Site check box on 3 of the 4 sites is greyed out. Any idea what I might have done wrong? Since I'm new to this, I could have made errors at any of the steps above. 

 

Thanks for your help.

I forgot to add, I also can't open the git terminal from within Dreamweaver.

(later:)

I changed the Path to Terminal in Edit > Preferences to:

 

C:\Program Files\Git\git-bash.exe

 

That allowed me to open the terminal. However, when I closed the terminal, I got the error below - what's causing this?

 

Error: Error: ^C: C:\Program Files\Git\git-bash.exe --cd="C:/xampp/htdocs/__psybooks/"

Thanks, Nancy. That's what I read that helped a lot. I got some of the issues above resolved. But one that remains is that when I open the terminal and then close it, I still get the error below. I'd love it if someone could help with this:

 

Error: Error: ^C: C:\Program Files\Git\git-bash.exe --cd="C:/xampp/htdocs/__psybooks/"

Looks like Git-bash can't change directories to an Xampp folder. 

Maybe @BenPleysier has some ideas.

It's been years since I last used Dreamweaver. But this video will be able to help.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Thanks all. I was working in Dreamweaver/Git just fine on my other machine so although I'm not GREAT with it, it's also not new to me. The other machine worked just fine. This new machine is still glitchy. I think several things are wrong, frankly, but maybe hard to track down.
