Need help with ignoring settings.php

Recommended Posts


I have settings.php in root directory (same directory as my .gitignore). I have tried everything. But settings.php still shows up when I commit stuff and when I change it it shows modified as status.

I have tried everything:


Interesting is that it successfully ignores .idea directory but it doesnt ignore my settings file. Any ideas?


Below is screenshot that shows that settings.php is green right now.

I don't see your screenshot, but maybe update Git.  I also have that issue in PhpStorm for one repo, it insists on trying to commit or pull a file on the ignore list.

Git is software that you can download and update like any other software.  If you're using the latest version then that's probably not the issue though.

According to this:


Files that are already being tracked won't get ignored if added to that file.  You need to stop the file from being tracked, and then ignore it.
