My first GIT project - Need pointing in right direction

Hi,

I have a dedicated Ubuntu server running Apache and MySQL - On it, we run an ecommerce shop using Magento software which I am developing/designing/seoing.

I wish to get things under control using Git. And by that I mean, I have been using a testing server but FTP'ing tests and changes to it prior to putting on the dedicated server (2 different servers completely).

What I wish to have is the testing site, available on the Ubuntu server, under a different domain so I can still test things but also incorporate some version control system so that changes are thoroughly documented and can be unrolled if required without a major headache. Once run on testing server and happy with it, I would like to push it to the production server.

But how do I proceed?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Ben

My experience is that it is better to ask more than less, especially if you have previous experience with another version control system. Git differs, but it is actually simpler to understand than the other ones (at least for me).
