I’m quite new on the Git / CI topic. So hopefully my question isn’t too silly
I’m on building my deployment workflow for our Webshop (Apache2 / Ubuntu) . The workflow is like this: local --> Gitlab -> Stage --> Live. The live Version is already online since some month. So to start I have to do the initial commit from our Live System to GItlab. What’s the best way to this? When I do on my live server:
cd existing_folder git init git remote add origin email@example.com git add . git commit git push -u origin master
It creates all the git files that I actually don’t want or need. So my plan was to download the files from the live Server and then do the initial commit in from my local machine. And afterwards deploy to my stage shop.
