13.2. Preparing an Application for Deployment

When preparing an application for deployment, all files must be committed to the appropriate directories in the local Git repository so that local application files are synchronized with the remote repository. The local Git repository is then pushed to the remote repository. For example, the local files for a PHP application are stored in the App_Name/php/ directory. The following instructions describe how to prepare an application for deployment.

Procedure 13.1. To Prepare an Application for Deployment:

  1. Add each new file and directory to the Git index:
    $ git add path/to/newfile
  2. Commit an application to the local repository:
    $ git commit -m "commit message"
