  • Log into via SSH
  • Navigate to /var/www/shefcompsocuk to view the git repo
  • Switch to the shefcompsocuk user by running sudo su shefcompsocuk. This is a necessary step due to the owner of the server files
  • Run git pull to retrieve latest changes from the GitHub repo
  • Run npm run build to re-build the JS/CSS/image assets (but you can skip this step if you're sure these assets have not changed)
  • Run systemctl restart shefcompsocuk to restart the server (there is a custom systemd service, DON'T run npm start)
