New to github watched some youtube videos but no success

Hello, GitHub, I recently got a project from a client, multiple developers working on the same project from different locations. the owner of the website asks me to work on GitHub. but I am totally new on GitHub, I have been watching GitHub tutorial on youtube for 1 hour but no success. the website is built in WordPress, and files are hosted on Namecheap. is this website support GitHub? how I can sync all file of this project on my local machine and work as a team member. though the owner gave me some video links that are not beneficial for me. any guidance will be highly appreciated please help. I need to start work by tomorrow morning.

Re: New to github watched some youtube videos but no success

Hi @triviaquestions ,

 

GitHub is a place where code is hosted to work on it collaboratively. GitHub is built on the foundations of Git, a highly popular version control system for code. GitHub does not host the sites itself (except static sites, just look up GitHub Pages), but as you've explained in your post Namecheap does that.

 

Just Google some Git + GitHub tutorials, like these: https://product.hubspot.com/blog/git-and-github-tutorial-for-beginners . If you have specific questions you're welcome to post back.

Learn the basics of version control, particulsrly using Git. Take note: Git is not the same as GitHub. However, GitHub uses Git.
