There is a site on my production server that has a several custom tables - one of which is tracking a customers contacts.
The site is becoming quite large and I would like to move the site to use gitify so that I can more easily manage changes but have 2 questions.
- Can I move an existing site to gitify or do I need to start with a fresh install?
- If I make changes in my development server
- Let’s say I add a new column to the custom “contacts” table to save their eye colour for some reason…
- I then push those changes to my production server
Is it possible to push the database changes out, without overwriting the tables actual contents?
What I mean is: If the contacts in my development server do not match the contacts in my production server I wouldn’t want to overwrite those contacts - but I would want that new column to show up in the table for those contacts.
