Hello
I'm in video 36, where you clone a repo on the production server. But you do it 'locally'.
I'd like to know which path I should use on my real production server...
I dont even understand how you can get access to the directories without ftp access, passwords or something.
I'm not sure where I'm going to go if I type
cd Bob/Websites/foo
probably not on any production server!
Could you help me ? This is a crucial point, connecting to the prod server...

In order to clone a

In order to clone a repository on the production server, you'll need to use the command line to SSH into your production server. If you are unable to or do not have sufficient access to do this, you may need to contact your server administrator.

Once you're connected, you can use the command "pwd" (print working directory) to output the path of the directory you're currently working on in order to find out where you are on the server.

thx for helping.
But how can I connect on my server from Win7 ? I mean : I'm using a cmd.exe console for git and github for now...
I also got Putty. But I dont copy how, if I could ever connect to my VPS, a git command could be parsed ?
I'm at Greengeeks : do hosters pre-install Git sometimes ?

Greengeeks does support Git now!

It looks like Greengeeks does support Git now! That being the case, I would search their knowledge base and contact them to see how they would recommend connecting to their servers to use Git, given your setup.
