Recursively add the entire folder to a repository


I am trying to add a branch to the master branch on GitHub and push a folder onto that branch.

The folder structure of the branch looks like - SocialApp/SourceCode/DevTrunk/SocialApp and all the source code files are in the last folder.

I am using the following Git commands:

git add *
git commit -m with the message
git push

This is pushing only the first folder "SocialApp" onto GitHub and ignoring the folder SourceCode that is inside the folder. How do I fix this?


Check the .gitignore file, if the subdirectory is ignored.

Then try again

git add --all
git commit -am "<commit message>"
git push

Make .gitignore ignore everything except a few files

Are multiple `.gitignore`s frowned on?
