How to use Github hooks when you disabled the root user
For security reasons, I disabled the root user and created a new user to use SSH.
When I use
rsync, I rsync to the /home/my-name/my-dir directory and then mv to the /var/www/html/my-dir director, then used sudo chown -R www-data:www-data my-dir.
I’d like to create a Github hook that when I push to the repo, pulls the repo to my droplet.
Q1. Should I pull to /home/my-name/my-dir and them moved to the /var/www/html/my-dir and use chown command to change the owner?
Q2. Is there any tutorial how to set this up?
