At one point, I had the following proper Drupal development workflow: local development environment (using Mamp), dev server for testing and a production server, and I used GIT to deploy the changes from the local to the repository and then I would pull from the repository into the dev or production server. MAMP was causing me a lot of issues so I uninstalled it in favor of setting up a LAMP stack in a more traditional way. But I'm using a Mac and things got really wonky. I basically messed up my local dev environment beyond all repair and wasn't able to use it but I had an aggressive deadline for a project.
I began to make many changes to the website on the dev server and then doubling the work on the live site, no longer using the local environment or pushing the changes up using GIT. During this time, I didn't commit any of the changes to GIT either. Basically, GIT and the local dev have been out of the picture for the last several months.
Since my last commit, the following situations have changed.
- created a new git repository that I want to use
- my local dev stack is still non-functional
- I want to set up a new host so I can test my existing dev site for current hosting issues
Where do I go from here in order to get back on track so that I can move the current website to a new host and preserve the GIT history without being able to use a local dev environment?
