I was surprised to see instructions for installing git on the vps in the community section and in the articles about how to use git effectively-- https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-git-branches-- it assumes that we are using git on our local machine and pushing to a remote server.
So I also installed git on my vps, because there were instructions to do so, but I don't understand why I'd want or need it there, unless I was developing on the remote server. Is anyone doing that?
