I am learning wordpress and am working on a wordpress site where I would like to have a revision history for every single change I make. I understand you can see the revision history for pages and posts, but what about custom css + php files?

I have some experience using git and github, so I am trying to save every single change I make to my website. Having version control is not necessary, I would just like to see every single edit I have made to the file.

I am using Dreamweaver to edit the files or editing files within the wp-admin in the wordpress site.

UPDATE: I've changed the question

Question: Is there anyway to have Version Control/Revision History without using Git and having multiple setups of wordpress for the same site? (example: I do not need a Dev mode, Production mode, or branches) -Git seems too complicated for what I want to do

UPDATE: I've changed the question again

I can deal with the branches of git but I would like to be able to have git on the server automatically push any changes to the repo when I put my file to the server in dreamweaver.

    You are more or less asking how to implement a comprehensive version control system. That is pretty broad.

  • Close... I do not want a version control system. I have no need for multiple versions... Only revision history

  • What is the difference between "multiple versions" and "revision history"?

  • revision history is the changes you have made and multiple versions refers to different versions of the language I believe

  • If you aren't keeping the versions the history is meaningless. Say, you know that user-x changes file a.php, but what was changed? Versions and histories need each other.
