Every container/deployed site has git install, configured and ready to go. You can set up git using the developer tools inside the Dollie Front-end Dashboard (using the Command Line / WP CLI tool) or by logging in via SSH into your container.
- Open the Command Line / WP CLI in the Developer Tools.
- Change the current working directory to your local project.
- Initialize the base WordPress directory as a Git repository.
$ git init
- Add the files in your new local repository. This stages them for the first commit.
$ git add . # Adds the files in the local repository and stages them for commit. To unstage a file, use 'git reset HEAD YOUR-FILE'.
- Commit the files that you've staged in your local repository.
$ git commit -m "First commit" # Commits the tracked changes and prepares them to be pushed to a remote repository. To remove this commit and modify the file, use 'git reset --soft HEAD~1' and commit and add the file again.
- Now you can add a remote repository (for example from your new GitHub Repo). All you need is an URL
- On the command line, add the URL for the remote repository where your local repository will be pushed.
$ git remote add origin remote repository URL # Sets the new remote $ git remote -v # Verifies the new remote URL
- Push the changes in your new repository to GitHub.
$ git push -u origin master # Pushes the changes in your local repository up to the remote repository you specified as the origin
