    I'm new to Sitefinity.  Is there a comprehensive list of what is stored in the database versus the file system?  We have a multi developer environment with both devs working on local codebase and local db using git for source control. After his commit and my git pull I didn't see the templates that he built.

    Hi Aaron,

    Please note that by design Sitefinity stores all the information in the database except the configuration settings which are stored under ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration folder. You may take a look at the following article on how you can move the configurations to database as well.

    So, if you create/modify/delete a page template or drag and drop a widget to a page template on one of the devs and commit the changes, these changes will not appear in the other dev environment since the databases are different. However, if you base your page template to a master page, the changes you make to the master page itself will be seen on both environments.
