Guide to Git™ – How to Set Up Deployment
If you’re just getting started with Git, then you might be wondering how to set up deployment. Luckily, there’s a guide to Git™ that can help you out. This guide covers everything from installing Git to configuring your repositories. Once you’ve got Git set up, you can start using it to manage your code changes and deployments.
Set up push deployment
A “push deployment” is a way to deploy your code from a local development environment to a live server. It involves using the git version control system to push your code from a local repository on your computer to a remote repository on the server. To set up push deployment, you first need to clone the remote repository to your local computer. This can be done using the git clone command and specifying the URL of the repository. Once you have cloned the repository, you will need to add your files and make any necessary changes. Once you are ready to deploy, you can push your code to the remote repository using the git push command. This will send your code to the server and update the files in the remote repository.
Set up pull deployment
A pull deployment is a type of deployment where you pull changes from a remote repository onto your local computer. This is done using the git version control system. First, you need to clone the repository onto your local computer. This can be done using the cpanel interface on your cpanel account. Once you have cloned the repository, you can then deploy changes by committing them and pushing them to the remote repository. The remote repository can then be pulled onto the server using the ssh command.
The deployment YAML file
The YAML file is the deployment file that you will use to deploy your website. You can deploy your website using the command line or by specifying the directory in which your website is located. If you are using a public_html directory, you will need to specify the repository in which your website is located.
Automatic or push deployment
Automatic or push deployment is a process where files are automatically copied from a repository to a deployment directory. This can be done using a git command, or through an interface such as cPanel.
Push deployment is often used for version control, so that different versions of files can be easily tracked and deployed. It can also be used to automatically deploy files when they are changed in the repository.
cPanel-managed repositories can be used for automatic or push deployment. Documentation for this can be found in the cPanel documentation.
Manual or pull deployment
There are two ways to deploy a website: manual or pull deployment. With manual deployment, you upload files to your web server using an FTP client or the cPanel interface. With pull deployment, you use git version control to push changes from your local computer to a remote repository. Pull deployments are more automated and can be used to deploy websites from a development environment to a production server.
3. Clone your Repository
In order to clone your repository, you need to have the URL of the remote repository. You can either use SSH or Git to clone your repository. If you are using cPanel, you can find the Clone URL in the Git section. Once you have the URL, you can clone your repository by running the “git clone” command in your terminal. This will create a local copy of the remote repository in your directory.
4. Manage Repositories
A repository is a place where files are stored. CPanel is a web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a website. Git is a version control system that allows you to track changes to files and collaborate with others. CPanel-managed repositories are repositories that are managed by CPanel.
To configure a cpanel-managed repository, you will need to log into your cPanel account and navigate to the “Git Version Control” section. From there, you will be able to create and configure your repositories. To deploy your files, you will need to use the “Deploy” button in the “Git Version Control” section.
🎆✨Congratulations! You have successfully deployed a remote repo to cPanel
Congratulations on successfully deploying your remote repo to cPanel! This is a great accomplishment and will allow you to keep your codebase updated with the latest changes from GitHub.
How do I link GitHub to hosting?
To link GitHub to your hosting account, you’ll need to generate a new SSH key and add it to your GitHub account. Once you’ve done that, you can simply clone your repositories to your hosting account and push changes back up to GitHub.
Does cPanel have Git?
Yes, cPanel has Git. cPanel is a web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web site. cPanel is installed on a web server and allows you to manage your website through a web browser. cPanel includes many features, such as email, databases, file management, security, and more. One of the features that cPanel offers is Git. Git is a distributed version control system that allows you to track changes in your files and revert back to previous versions if needed. cPanel makes it easy to use Git by providing a user-friendly interface.
How do I add a private repository to cPanel?
In order to add a private repository to cPanel, you will first need to create a file called “repositories.yaml” in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. This file will contain the configuration for your private repository. You will then need to add the following lines to this file:
name=My Private Repository
Once you have added these lines, you will need to run the “yum update” command in order to update the cPanel package repository list.
