Question

How to update my Django website

Posted July 30, 2021 104 views

I published my website using DigitalOcean while following this tutorial: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa_kQheCnds&list=PL-osiE80TeTtoQCKZ03TU5fNfx2UY6U4p&index=13](http://)
It works very well. However, I don’t know how to update my website. When I look up how to update it, everyone says to “pull using git”, but I don’t understand how to do it. I tried to clone the website to my computer by typing: “git clone example@IPaddress” in my command line but it doesn’t seem to work.
Any ideas on how I can solve my problem?

Hello,

Is your project already pushed to GitHub? If so you could clone the project to your local PC by running the following command:

git clone https://github.com/your_github_username/your_repository_name.git

Then you could make the changes to your project locally and once you are ready you can commit and push the changes to GitHub again:

git add .
git commit -m "Your Commit Message"
git push origin main

For more information on how to get started with Git and GitHub I could suggest taking a look at this free eBook here:

Hope that this helps.
Regards,
Bobby
