git pull, keep untracked files ignore and overwrite tracked file modified or deleted
I would like to do a git pull to the production server but I'm having some issues.
Someone deleted a tracked file on the server and also modified a file on the server. The server also adds untracked files that it uses for logs and such.
I would like to do a git pull that will override all tracked files and keep untracked files in tact.
Right now when i do a "git pull origin master" I get the following:
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge: free_profile.php
I've found this on stack overflow: Git force overwrite of local tracked files but not local untracked files
But I'm not sure if this is the appropriate solution. It's a production server so I need to make sure I'm doing the right thing.
