    I am taking on an existing wordpress site and I want to install it locally to change the theme files locally and then push my changes. I use pantheon for one of my projects and that works really well, using a git workflow.

    But, I just got a new wordpress site to manage, that is hosted through lightsail on bitnami. I have the SSH login and can access the site on the terminal, but I am not sure how to pull the entire site and run it locally. And I am also not sure what the best workflow is, making changes and pushing to a test version, etc.

    I am relatively new to wordpress and could really use some help just getting it set up properly. I am totally confused by the online documentation.

    I use a Mac.
