I’ve been working on getting my workflow for pushing my local copy of my (in-development) website up to my web host (DreamHost). I’ve followed their tutorial for doing this, and everything was working great. Until, that is, I decided I wanted to implement updates to my Kirby install using git submodules. Now, when I push my local copy to my web host, the site breaks. I couldn’t understand why. I wasn’t getting anything when trying to access the actual webpage (which is actually understandable, as I don’t have a template set up just yet), but I wasn’t getting anything. When I tried to access my panel, again, nothing. No errors, outside of a 500-level error. It wasn’t until I logged into the FTP interface of DreamHost did I realize that my
kirby directory was empty, and so was the for the one plugin I had setup locally using submodules. So it seems as though there is a disconnect in how I am syncing my site to my remote server and how git handles the submodules. Would someone be able to point me in the right direction for getting this all to work? Maybe this setup isn’t a good one for using submodules?
Thanks for any help!
