Automating Git with Git Configure and WebHooks
CyberPanel is introducing Git Manager in version 2.0.0 so now you can easily track files using Git which includes your website data, databases or even emails with your public or private repository at any Git supported server.
This makes it so you can directly sync your development platform to your web server.
In order to set up Git Manager, follow this tutorial: How to use Git Manager in CyberPanel
In this tutorial, we assume that you have set up Git and now you wish to automate the workflow
To automate workflow, go to “Manager Git” option in your website’s management panel
In order to configure the automation click on “Configure Git”
In the new pop-up, select how often you would like the push and pull to happen
Git Manager provides you with an option to automatically pull from the repository whenever there is change.
