Today, I had this strange issue on the production server.
I always pull from origin from that server and I never do any work on it. So to my surprise when doing a git pull I got a report saying I will overwrite changes!! Well, how did that happen?? I have no idea.
On closer inspection I find that the composer.lock file has changed. It has new hash's in it.
I don't know if this is a thing or not but maybe composer updates itself.....who knows....couldn't find any results from a web search so I thought I just gonna get on with it.
Here's what I did:
(Not relevant:) I looked at the composer.json on my development server and realised it was set up wrong.
So, I made the changes to the composer.json on the production server.
Deleted the composer.lock file
Ran composer update.
git add -A
git commit -m "message"
git pull from github repo which caused a merge
Now I just needed to push the changes to the origin (github)
git push email@example.com:username/repo.git
But I get this message "fatal: The current branch master has no upstream branch"
But failed to notice this bit
