EasyEngine with Git Deploy

TLDR;

Just run wget -qO eeGit bit.ly/ee-git && sudo bash eeGit and your server will installed EasyEngine and Git Deploy already there.


Instruction

Add command ee-git to your VPS, help you manage your website's source code by git, forget FTP, SFTP, no thirdparty software needed, just Git and EasyEngine.

Install EE & Git Deploy

Install

For Linux, we have created an installer script which will install all the dependencies for you. We have tested this on Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 18.04 and Debian 8, Debian 10 ( Only EasyEngine supported system ).

wget -qO eeGit bit.ly/ee-git && sudo bash eeGit

Usage

Create a website with EasyEngine's command

sudo ee site create example.com --type=wp

Create git deploy for example.com's theme

ee-git example.com theme_name

Enjoy!

Note

You should create your website by ee command first after that run command ee-git to setup git deploy for your theme.

To deploy WordPress plugins you can also use this way to create git deploy, but you need to edit the /home/example.com/hooks/post-receive file to make sure your git checkout exact source code to the right folder.

You should also need to add your public SSH key to /home/git/.ssh/authorized_keys too.
