How Deploy Now works

Deploy Now abstracts from the complexity of infrastructure provisioning, CI/CD configuration and TLS/domain handling. Connect your repository to Deploy Now and set up a GitHub Actions build and deploy workflow in a step-by-step guide. The workflow, cronjobs, file persistency, automated runtime commands, .env and .htaccess can be managed directly and version-controlled in the repository files. Sensitive data such as database or email credentials can be stored in GitHub secrets and referenced in runtime configuration files. Deploy Now injects their values during the deployment process. Databases can be managed via phpMyAdmin. Use Staging Deployments to deploy feature branches and Multi Deployments to deploy from one repository to multiple runtimes.
