Finding a hassle-free solution for code deployment can be a lifesaver. Here, DeployBot fully satisfies that purpose. 

Today, I will walk you through how to deploy into WP Provider using DeployBot, demonstrating the whole setup in 4 easy steps. So, let’s dive in to experience the simplest code deployment process with WP Provider and DeployBot:

Note: If you're a beginner, then start following from step 1. Otherwise, skip to step 4 if you already have a repository and server connected with DeployBot. 

Step 1: Create a DeployBot account.

Since you're using DeployBot as a deployment tool, you need to first sign up with your name and email to create an account. Then, you will be taken to the main configurations such as repo, environment, and server DeployBot

Register DeployBot

Step 2: Connect a Repository With DeployBot.

After registering DeployBot, you need to perform three setups one by one. First comes the repository connection. To set up a repository, press the “Connect a repository” option.

To do so, hit the “Others'' option on the Connect a repository page as shown below. This will take you to a repository setup tab. 

Now, to get the Repository URL, move on to the Gitea site to log in to your account.

From the added repository in Gitea, copy the repository URL that you want to connect to in DeployBot.

Now, enter or paste the Gitea repository URL and select “Login and password” as an Authentication method. Here, your credentials will automatically appear. Now, add the “Title” and select the “Color label”

Then, simply press the “Connect” button. This will connect the Gitea repo with DeployBot instantly. 

Step 3: Set up a Suitable Deployment Environment.

In the third step, you need to build an environment by pressing the second option named “Create an environment”.

Create deployment environment

Now, for General settings, enter the Name and Color label for your environment. Then, head to selecting a deployment mode from the following two options:

  • Manual WordPress Deployment: This works great for a production environment where every deployment should take place under in-person observation.
  • Automatic WordPress deployment: It is best for staging and development environments that don't require manual observation.

Select one deployment mode that is appropriate for your environment. Then select a Branch from the drop-down menu. At last, press the “Connect” button.

Configure an environment for DeployBot

Step 4: Integrate WP Provider with DeployBot.

After setting up a deployment environment, you need to add the WP Provider to DeployBot. To do so, visit the “Servers & Settings” tab and hit the “Add a server” option. Then, choose SFTP as a deployment option.

To get access to the hostname, login to WP Provider and navigate to System Info & Files >> System Information. And the Port for SFTP will be 2200. 

SFTP credentials of WP Provider

After getting that information, paste the credentials on the respective fields on the DeployBot server connection tab. Here, the Username and Password will be the same as the WP Provider login credentials. Then, hit the “Connect” button.
