How do you sync changes from a local project to Github in the cloud, using PHPStorm. And then how do you retrieve the changes on a remote server?

Given the following setup:

  • Mac/PC
  • PhpStorm
  • Git enabled on local directory
  • Using Laravel Valet

You publish your changes to Github by using VCS menu, Commit, Push

Now your changes are at Github, but how do you get them down to a remote server?

The solution is to use Git Fetch and Git Pull, or to do these both at once:

git fetch && git pull

See also list of useful Git commands.

Examples below:

[arb@cp1 bitcoin-spread]$ git fetch

remote: Enumerating objects: 13, done.

remote: Counting objects: 100% (13/13), done.

remote: Compressing objects: 100% (5/5), done.

Unpacking objects: 100% (8/8), done.

remote: Total 8 (delta 3), reused 8 (delta 3), pack-reused 0
