Setting up GitHub for Ignition

Hi,

I am trying to set up GitHub for ignition but I do not understand how is it set.

Please, anyone, help me?

Thank you,
Priyanka

Looking for that setting up github guide for Ignition - Ignition - Inductive Automation Forum

Important clarification for the sake of @pturmel’s blood pressure:
Git != Github.

Git is a free, open-source, distributed version control system.
Github is some shiny chrome wrapping Git in a website, and decidedly not-free or open source.
If you want “version control for Ignition”, all you need is git. Github is only necessary if you want to have a standalone web portal to manage things. There’s also free alternatives (e.g. Gitlab, Gitea).

I have installed git on my window. I tried to start git init but an error was found.

C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition\data\projects>git init

Found this error → C:/Program Files/Inductive Automation/Ignition/data/projects/.git: Permission denied

Please can you help me?

I don’t have git setup myself, but this seems you may need to change the permissions on that folder. IE Right click → Properties → Security

Can you explain in detail? I have tried many times but have not understood how to change permission.

C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition\data\projects>git init
C:/Program Files/Inductive Automation/Ignition/data/projects/.git: Permission denied

I can’t say 100% that this is the problem, but my best guess.
