2. After successfully installing git utility, just associate or initialize the folder where files or folders are going to be processed to be synchronize to a remote Git repository. Read the article titled ‘Setup a Git Repository via Command Line‘ in this link to find out.

3. Add the files or folders which is located inside the folder which has already been associate or initialize with Git version control stated in the 2nd step. It can be found in the article titled ‘Add Files or Folders to Git Repository‘ in this link.

4. After successfully executing the previous step, just commit the files or folders by executing the following command :
