Import database file?

Hi. I’m using GitHub as a repo for an app I write on my PC and run on Glitch. It has a small SQLite db in a folder named .data. This the files push from my PC to GitHub (I can see them there) but they don’t end up on Glitch when I import from there. Is this due to it being named .data? Is there a way to permit this if that is the case or what should I do? Thanks.
