  • Automate Deployments on Merge to Main Branch
    SSH-ing into servers and doing a git pull is an approach I've used before with PHP. One thing to lookout for is if that server is taking requests during the git pull. If so, this can lead to some requests failing as files change during the pull. A way to address this is to have a symlink'ed webroot. That way you can keep multiple copies of your repo on the server and swap the symlink once the git pull is done.... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
