Atom not detecting git



I am trying out atom to edit my very large company wordpress website. I have git installed and a repo on github but atom is not detecting it. I have tried moving my git install around and even starting a new one but it just isn’t registering on my main directory folder. On top of that, when I open my main folder in atom, it starts detecting that every single file has been modified (they’re all colored yellow.)

I’ve been able to load git on other directories but I really need it on this main one as it is the root of my entire website. I’ve been tearing out my hair over this trying to solve it all day!
