Recently I took over a project that has been in the works for a while. And, I switched over to automated deployments using AWS. Codecommit, CodePipeline, and CodeDeploy to get the application onto a development server.
This all works out pretty good except I noticed that some of the .gitignores are actually ignoring some important files such as:
And many other .gitignores throughout the project’s source.
Now, I dont know if this is due some type of programming issue(other person caused some weird issue) that I came into, or if there is some reason why this is set up like this. As you can imagine, the page is no longer working as our git is not getting the index.php’s which means its not being deployed on to the server.
Is there any further documentation I should be reading before doing anything else? I have read anything with the "-local" prefix SHOULD NOT BE USED ON THE SERVERS, and I am trying to understand why? And why even have them then? I can understand if they are there for local development inside a closed network at a company, but we are using a public facing development system that has very tight security(IP white-listing) for testing out the site live.
So… yeah thanks!
