I'm trying to learn to update my gitit site through git. I followed the instructions on the Readme page closely, repeatedly, but it isn't working. 

I can clone the site with no trouble. I can edit the files, save them, commit them, and push them. In fact, I can even see the updated files on the remote server on gitk (running on the remote server), in the master branch. However, the changes are not reflected on the pages, and any changes I make through the web interface do not show up in git. They exist in two different worlds, somehow. 

Is there some simple step I'm missing?

First try turning off caching (`use-cache: no` in config);
it might be a caching issue. See the section on Caching
in the README.

If it's caching, you can add a git post-commit hook to the
server that runs expireGititCache (see README).

It wasn't caching. That was already set to "no."

What happened was, I initiated gitit in ~ and connected git to there, but then I created a start-up script to automatically start gitit. On the next reboot, the script started gitit at /, and created a new wikidata directory there. The original interacted just fine with git, and the new one interacted just fine with the web interface, but neither had anything to do with the other.

Aha. You can set the repository location in config,
that should take care of it!
