How to Create a New GIT Repository
Learn how to create GIT repository with the SG-GIT interface
The first thing you should do with SG-GIT to start using GIT is to create a new repository for the site you want to manage with it.
Access SG-Git in cPanel
The first step is to create a new repository for your site/app that you want to manage through GIT. To do this login to your cPanel and click on the SG-Git tool icon that can be found in the Sitebuilding Software section.
The GIT interface has two main sections. The first section shows you the active GIT repositories that you have and the second section that we detect automatically applications installed through Softaculous, or our setup Wizard.
Create a repository of a detected application
Let's say that your main site is a WordPress and you also have several sub-domains that use other applications. To create a new GIT repository for your main site you need to click on the Create Git Repository button next to the main site:
The system will create the repository on the server. Please note that the system will need some time to create the GIT repository and you may need to wait up to 5-10 minutes.
Once the new repository is created you will see a new window with SSH connection details.
Add an application that was not detected automatically
If your site is not listed in the Websites, you can add it manually. To do this, first click on the Add New button in the bottom-right part of the page.
A pop-up will appear allowing to you to specify the folder where your application is located. Once you do that, simply press the Submit button.
That's it, your application has been added to the list of sites you can create a repository from.
