Ignore file permissions with git

Description:

Running a git status command shows modified files, with only changed file permissions. This can be due the IDE, for example PHPStorm is known for being a bit too nosy.

diff –git a/myproject/index.php b/myproject/index.php

old mode 100644
new mode 100755

Solution:

Git configuration contains an entry that defines if file permission changes should be considered as changes or not. Do disable this, just run the following:

git config core.filemode false
