I have PhpStorm 2.1.5 loaded on my home laptop (which is physically large and does not get moved), and also on a portable laptop.
Recently, I started using the Git version control interface within PhpStorm as opposed to Git Bash. On my portable laptop, this has caused no issue. However, my office laptop will give me an error when starting PhpStorm: ("Invalid Git roots - Some configured Git VCS roots are not under Git or have Git repositories in subdirectories without configured VCS root. Configure.")
I simply close the warning and continue working. Otherwise, if I configure the git repos in the subdirectories, when I try to "commit and push" work on my own project, the subdirectory repos try to push as well. In this case, that is not preferable. As I stated, for now I close the warning and continue working, but my question is - Which behavior is appropriate, my office laptop's or portable laptop's?
The directory that the subdirectories are in is in my .gitignore file. I have even tried using PhpStorm's method for ignoring directories with no help.
I understand that this is not a horrible problem, but it is annoying enough for me to inquire. Please help.
Edit to add - It may be helpful to know that my office laptop has a ssd and my portable laptop has a hdd.
