Getting Started with Git
Start Using Git on a Project
# cd into project your working on cd <project> # initialize a git repository git init # add all of the files to the repository git add . # now commit the files to repository git commit -m "My first commit message"
Later, check which files have changed and are out of sync
# this will list changed files and new files git status # this will add the newly updated updated_file.php to the commit # staging area git add updated_file.php # commit changes with a good change message git commit -m "Fixed missing name bug in updated_file.php"
Create a remote repository
# ssh into server and create repository directory ssh email@example.com mkdir myproject cd myproject # --bare option means this repository will be pushed to and pulled # from but never worked in directly (ie it will be a repository without working # files). This caused me no small amount of confusion when I first # started using git. git init --bare # exit out of distant vladivostok server exit # cd into local project cd project # add the remote repository git remote add vladivostok ssh:firstname.lastname@example.org:myproject # now you can push a branch of the repository to the remote # repository, "master" is the default main branch in git git push vladivostok master
Sweet! Now your code is backed up on a remote server. In fact your code’s entire history is on the remote server. Everytime you make a commit on the local server, you can push that change to the remote server as well.
