You've inherited a Prod/live Sitecore site. The previous team's source control is wildly out of date and full of random junk. They were directly making code changes (for example .cshtml) to the Prod/live site's inetpub/MySCSite/Website/ folder and not tracking in source (yes, barf).
How do you get source control setup for this site now? So that you can safely make changes in source and then deploy to the site.
I assume you would first find a way to separate base-install Sitecore files from the custom dev changes, correct? I.e. don't just grab the entire
Website/ folder and put in source, correct?
- I admit this is kind of similarto other questions, but mine is different and more specific:
- How to setup sitecore site from existing database and website folder?
- How to use SIM to setup dev environment for existing Sitecore instance?
- Maybe this one too, but it's answers are not what I expect Sitecore Instance Manager developer environment setup
