Using GIT to update your website

Using GIT to update your website

Git is a version control system designed for rapid development and is built into most modern development IDEs and consoles. It allows you to manage the changes in a reversible fashion, so you can easily revert bad updates.

Here at Kualo, we love to provide customers with new and efficient ways to get their work done, so we’ve done exactly that. We would recommend that you set up an SSH public key, but you can also use your cPanel password to authenticate over SSH.

In this tutorial, we’ll go over how to push updates to your website.

Recommended WordPress Caching Plugins

Caching can significantly increase the performance of your WordPress web site by improving it’s loading time and reducing the generated CPU usage.

As a dynamic content management system (CMS), for every visitor’s request it has to process, WordPress has to connect to it’s database, check if the requested page exists, then output it’s content.

That might not be an issue for web sites that does not receive a lot of traffic, however a sudden spike caused by search engine spiders or just increase in the usual visitors, can quickly cause your WordPress web site to generate high CPU usage on the server, while trying to process needless duplicate requests over and over again.
