Hey all, couldn't really think of the most appropriate title for this
question - but as a relative git noob I am hoping someone can just
clarify something for me..
I create a project like so:
1) On my server, I write a little code, configure my project all via
2) Now I run git init/add/commit.
3) I fire up my laptop and clone to the local machine.
4) A period of time later I push all my commits back to the server.
5) Then I find myself on the server, but the contents of the original
folder do not reflect the changes I have made and pushed back up.
I guess I need to do another clone on the server to a working
directory to see all the changes I pushed, which leads to the question
of what do I do with the vanilla project files created in (1) above,
and further to that - where does the actual repo live?
I'm sure this is a fundamental misunderstanding on my part. I hope
someone can clarify this for me.
Thanks for any assistance!
