Use EGit For PHP Deployment (like FTP client) [message #924219] Wed, 26 September 2012 12:18 Go to next message

Hi everybody,

I'm using Eclipse PDT, and I'm the only developer on the project in question. I've set up two identical copies of my web application on my local machine and on the live server. What I would like to do is:

1. Make changes to my local files
2. When I finish changing, I commit them to my local repository
3. Those committed changes then get copied to my live server

I don't want a repository on live server, I just want to copy changed files, overriding the existing ones (if any). As you can assume, now I'm copying all changed files via FTP to live server. This is very tedious and error-prone. So I was hoping EGit could help me with this.

Is this possible with EGit? Or with Git at all? If not, do you know any better solution?

I'm new to Git, and since I'm using Eclipse, I thought that EGit would be a good solution. Committing goes just fine, but no luck with deployment.

Thanks in advance,

Git is about distributed versioning so the assumption is that each participating host
has it's own local repository clone. It sounds like you should try something like
rsync [1] instead.
