  • Go to Travis CI and sign in with your GitHub account
  • Go to the repository
  • Click on the button ‘Active Repository’

If all works, that’s fine. However, if you get an error: ‘There was an error while trying to activate the repository.’ do the following:

  • Go to the settings for your account on Travis – Assure that the repository you want to build is enabled.
