Git Question

Recursively add the entire folder to a repository

I am trying to add a branch to the master branch on GitHub and push a folder onto that branch.

The folder structure of the branch looks like -
SocialApp/SourceCode/DevTrunk/SocialApp and all the source code files are in the last folder.

I am using the git following commands:

git add *
git commit -m with the message
git push


This is pushing only the first folder "SocialApp" onto GitHub and ignoring the folder SourceCode that is inside the folder. How do I fix this?

Answer

check the .gitignore file, if the subdirectory is ignored.

then try again

git add --all
git commit -am "<commit message>"
git push
