Hi,

I am completely new to this (eclipse and GIT - actually just trying to switch from homesite Smile so project etc are a new phenomenon to me.), in fact i am pretty new to source control in general i looked into using some (SVN) about 6 years ago but never actually got round to doing anything.

I have been recommended by a few people that if i am starting from scratch then it would be a good idea to try and get my head around GIT as opposed to using SVN. Plus my research seems to point towards GIT being the Future.

I have a general understanding of SVN in that a central repository is stored on a server somewhere, and everyone takes their code from there, but GIT is made up of lots of separate repositories 9not sure how they all link together)

The more i think about this the more i don't understand how its is all meant to work. I have EGIT installed and have kinda gotten the hang of committing, adding to version control & resource history on a local project stored on my machine.

However i have my live sites on a remote server hosted (at Alurium) how should i go about getting the sites onto my local machine and using GIT? then syncing?

Im at a complete loss

Cheers in advance

Ben

Hi,

Ive played around, and now finaly have a github repositry set up.

Ive just been playing with a test project and done the following to try and recreate two users editing code.

(note the use of CFBUILDER & CFECLIPSE as two different users)




Created a project locally in CFBUILDER
Pushed the project to github
then imported the project into CFECLIPSE
made a change in CFBUILDER ie "edited in cfbuilder"
committed this change
made a change in CFECLIPSE ie "edited in cfeclipse"
committed this change
Then pushed the test project back to github from CFBUILDER
Checked the github history and commit note
all as expected
Then pushed the test project back to github from CFECLIPSE
this time an message was displayed saying "rejected" with red background
if i click back and check "force update" i works

Now everything seems to be out of sync (ish)

Anyone got any ideas?

Should a difference screen appear to show that changes have been made by someone else?

Cheers

Ben
