Errors Occurrs Each Time "GIT pushing" to remote.

Hello everyone,

I encounter two issues with my laravel web app each time I “git push” to the server. Everything works fine on the local machine (Mac). I am running nginz server on DigitalOcean.

1- Each time I “git push” to remote, all the pictures only the website get broken. The only way I solve this is, cd to public/storage, delete the storage folder and then run php artisan storage:link. This is tedious because I have to do it every time I “git push” to remote.

2- Each time I “git push” to remote and when I try to updating/populating any of my tables, I receive this error after the table has been updated/populated: (1/1) PDOException SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 8 attempts to write a readonly database

Sinc,e I am using TNTSearch package, I notice it tries to write to the index file. I figured out that I need to give permission to the database, so I solve this issue using: chmod -R 0777 /path/to/index . This solves the problem but it recurs when I “git push” to the remote.

How can I give a permanent write permission to public/storage (in the first case) so that I do not have to run the command each time I push to remote? Also, How do I give a permanent write permission to the database, so that I do not have to do that each time I push to remote?

Thank you in advance.

If you have specific tasks that must be completed (e.g. running php artisan storage:link) after each push to your production server, you might consider using git hooks to automate them. Placing a script at .git/hooks/post-receive will cause it to run on the git remote each time it receives a push.
