I can't think through all the consequences right now, it's certainly an edge case so please be careful to do it in such a way that it's not a burden to the majority of users

anyone tried using version press with a wpengine hosted wordpress instance?

@candrews
borekb, do we know when there will be another beta release? I'm having to deal with a lot of manual annoyance patching Versionpress to fix problem already merged into master a few months ago, such as versionpress/versionpress#1435 and versionpress/versionpress#1438
Borek Bernard
@borekb
hi Craig, maybe you described it already and I have forgotten but what's the annoyance? does it make a big difference whether you download a ZIP file from GitHub or download it from some other shared storage? (I assume that you have built the newer version previously.)

I was reading the docs and I have some question about data bases
"However, there are also plugins that are either not quite well coded or so complex that they require specific support. To a lesser extent, this is also true for themes, mostly the "page builder" themes that possibly use their own database tables, etc. But it is far more common for plugins."
VersionPress can't backup all databases, only those created by WordPress?

Hello All,
I have a question.
We use version press in slightly unusual way:
We don't have several environments like dev, stage etc. and we don't use clone site to clone from one env to another, instead we use version press only for auto-commit and whenever we want to even DB with git code we use apply changes option to create DB records per the code change.
Our issues: Merge conflict while trying to merge after the following scenario :

  1. Checkout branch "A" from master. Make some changes, e.g. create a new post.
  2. Checkout branch "B" from master. Make some changes, e.g. create a new post.
  3. Merge branch "A" into master.
  4. Merge branch "B" into master. (Here we have a conflict)

I found that version press uses custom driver to perform the merge which is located in wp-content/plugins/versionpress/src/Git/merge-drivers/ini-merge.sh.

There are 2 types of conflicts I have:

  1. Is with some kind of timestemp issue in wp-content/vpdb/options/WP/wpe_notices_ttl.ini.
    This file content is:
    [wpe_notices_ttl]
    option_value = "1564924045"
    autoload = "yes"

The conflict is in option_value row.
Can I add this file to .gitignore or I should always take bigger number? What is the right way to treat this conflict?
Does anybody knows what is the meaning of this number?

  1. Second and more serious issue, on my opinion. is the conflict in for example wp-content/vpdb/users/FE/FED43885FC2742899CEF3E7770C05382.ini file.
    It has a row like:
    <<table-prefix>>yoast_notifications#F9E27E55AA4A4A00BCD76EED152E4FEA[0]["message"] = "Yoast SEO and Advanced Custom Fields can work together a lot better by adding a helper plugin. Please install <a href=\"http://MYIP:PORT/wp-admin/update.php?action=install-plugin&plugin=acf-content-analysis-for-yoast-seo&_wpnonce=SOME_CODE\">ACF Content Analysis for Yoast SEO</a> to make your life better. <a href=\"https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-content-analysis-for-yoast-seo/\" aria-label=\"More information about ACF Content Analysis for Yoast SEO\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\">More information</a>."

The conflicted change is in MYIP and in SOME_CODE what should I do with these?

Any help is really appreciated.

Hello!
I'm reading the WP-CLI Commands manual page right now.
I set up versionpress on my desktop, and pushed the repository into github.
Now I'm trying to restore it from git to my notebook.
I set up a xampp environment, do I get the following right:
1) I git clone the repository into the desired folder (e.g. C:\xampp\htdocs\mylittlesite)
2) create a table for wordpress in the database
2) from wp-cli, I run "wp core config --dbname=x --dbuser=y"
3) copy a freshly downloaded versionpress into the plugins folder
4) "wp vp restore-site --require=wp-content/plugins/versionpress/src/Cli/vp.php --siteurl='http://localhost/thefolder_i_cloned_to_from_git_and_hasversionpress_inthe_pluginsFolder'
5) and after that it should be working?

Think I got it now.

Then have

@kbdavis07
Seems like for some reason this was not being added to the config file
include_once __DIR__ . '/wp-config.common.php';
after everything seems to be running now notice it was also injected in it.
Also deleted a previous version of the git folder .git' as it was under repo before.
Not sure if that was the issue or not?
candrews @candrews is starting to wonder if VersionPress is a dead project...

Hello everybody. First of all, thanks a lot for providing VersionPress, this is a great project. I am just starting to set up a site with it. No, of course, I am looking for plugin integrations. I understand that this is a ton of work and that you are hoping for the community to help with this. One thing that I am missing though is links from your page to those community integrations that might already be out there. All I found is this: https://github.com/mkreckovic - are there more?
Borek Bernard
@borekb
hi @fbertram, I think there are not that many out there yet, those from @mkreckovic being the main ones.

Hey guys. I just heard about versionpress and found it really amazing.
I was actually looking for better ways to sync local and production instances and it's pretty promising. Congratulations.
So far I've been using wordmove but having the ability to version control changes is awesome
I thought maybe I could try to help with something but decided to bring the discussion here before preparing a PR
maybe we could have an endpoint in vuepress plugin which would receive update notifications from Git central repos and run an automatic pull
what do you think?
*correction: have you ever saw that URL?
that way we could push changes to github, gitlab, whatever and setup a webhook to notify our production, staging, whatever environment of changes.
Borek Bernard
@borekb
@sidneydemoraes_twitter that's definitely possible, and how some people use VersionPress to deploy their sites
