Try adding below lines to your .gitignore file. I am not aware of your requirement. But I think it's better to keep the web.config file checked in instead of ignoring the changes [Just a suggestion as I am not sure of your requirement].

*.dll
*.pdb
*.config

Where exactly you are placing this .gitignore file. Can you provide a copy of the copy that you are using to verify or test from my end.

Use attached file. Also if you tried to check-in web.config file earlier and just recently trying to ignore web.config file then you have to run below command from git bash and you should be able to solve your issue.

git rm --cached web.config
.gitignore.txt
