There can be two approaches to tackle this question and make sure that you include both because any of the below options can be used depending on the situation:

  • Remove or fix the bad file in a new commit and then push it to the remote repository. This is the most obvious way to fix an error. Once you have made necessary changes to the file, then commit it to the remote repository using the command: git commit -m “commit message”

  • Also, you can create a new commit that undoes all changes that were made in the bad commit. To do this use the command

  • git revert <name of bad commit>
