Managing an Existing WordPress Site with Git (1 post)

    I'm trying to manage my WordPress install with Git the problem is that I don't have a local backup of my site; the entire site lives in public_html on my webhost. How can I get started? I've watched a few youtube videos and read several articles about setting up Git but they all seemed to apply to people setting up a new site from scratch. My situation is different because I already have the site on my webhost.

    What should I do? I copied /public_html to my local document root and then imported the sql export into my local db but now I'm getting weird plug-in messages and when I go to localhost/public_html I get wordpress database errors about a missing tables:

    wp_bwps_lockouts
    wp_bwps_log

    This is confusing me since I copied my entire site to my local XAMPP installation...
