So, my new 'project' is getting Wordpress and GIT working together.
My 'ultimate' goal, at this stage at least, is to have a local install of Wordpress and GIT, running on a Mac Mini on my home network, that 'mirrors' a hosted install of Wordpress (except for some Wordpress settings that need to be changed).
The idea is to be able to make changes to the local development installation, track changes with GIT, and be able to 'push' updates up to the hosted install once I have had a chance to test things out.
Its early days but I have found a few articles on the net that sound promising... here is one that I am studying to learn the basics of what I need to do Developing on Wordpress using GIT and here is another Using GIT for Wordpress development and this Adding GIT to your Wordpress development workflow
Anyone know of any other articles worth reading?
