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.

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.
