I am aware of using
.gitignore file to exclude some files being added, but I have several
config.php files in source tree and I need to exclude only one, located in the root while other keep under revision control.
What I should write into
.gitignore to make this happen?
From the documentation:
If the pattern does not contain a slash /, git treats it as a shell glob pattern and checks for a match against the pathname relative to the location of the .gitignore file (relative to the toplevel of the work tree if not from a .gitignore file).
A leading slash matches the beginning of the pathname. For example, "/*.c" matches "cat-file.c" but not "mozilla-sha1/sha1.c".
So you should add the following line to your root
