I am attempting to setup GIT to deploy my project to different locations based on the branch. (I think this is what I want to do anyway).
My current setup is this: Local dev machine running Netbeans to make changes. Remote server hosting GIT projects (same server running apache) - 2 subsites exist a test.FQDN.com and a live.FQDN.com
What I would like to do is have 1 GIT project (MyProject) and create a new feature branch. Any commits done to the new feature branch would push to test.FQDN.com. Once the features have been tested and then merged into the master branch, it would push to live.FQDN.com. I have looked at GIT's post-receive hooks and was able to use "git checkout -f" command to pull on the test.FQDN.com site however that only pulls the master branch and not the new feature branch. I do not have any funding to use a third party to make this work, and would prefer to stay within GIT but have full root access to the web server if there is a package to install which would help control this. Any suggestions would be great!
EDIT Here is what my post-receive looks like currently:
#!/bin/sh umask 002 cd /srv/git/projects/APP.git git push --mirror backupLocation:APP branch=$(git branch | grep "*" | sed "s/* //") if [ "$branch" == "master" ] then GIT_WORK_TREE=/srv/www/ssl_apps/APP git checkout -f else GIT_WORK_TREE=/srv/www/ssl_apps/APPtest git checkout -f fi
