How to init a git repo in an existing staging or production server via SSH

Init the repo
SSH to the server and navigate to the project location
$ rm -fr .git
$ git init
$ git remote add origin your-git-url
$ git fetch
$ git reset --hard origin/master    **

For pulling future updates from the server:
$ git pull origin master (or whichever branch you are pulling from)
