Github 100mb/file limit issue with static sites

Hey Everyone, all of this is quite new for me.

I’ve gotten cloudflare and netifly static sites working.
Currently using wordpress and simply static export to zip, however github has file limits so all the image folders done upload properly and its problematic.

Im wondering if there is a method to getting my files in github correctly and quickly from the zip folder ive downloaded off wordpress. Its a little fustrating currently due to this limitation and i wish kinsta would directly allow zip folder uploads as a workaround.

I spent some time looking for guides and step by step videos, but nothing.

Hi @Mr-McMuffin :wave: Welcome to the Kinsta Community!

I suggest that you extract the zip file from your local machine first before importing it to your Github repository.

Please note that if you import your files via the Github website using a web browser, the maximum size limit per file is 25MB. However, if you push the files through the command line using git command, the maximum size limit per file is 100MB. You can find more details about this here: Adding a file to a repository - GitHub Docs

I also found a YouTube video that provides easy steps on how to push your files to your Github repository via the command line using git commands. You can check it out here:

I hope it helps!
