Git ignore file name change

I don't really think this worth bloging anyway but I would like to have it noted. I renamed a file and git was not tracking it. It shows nothing new to commit while my file name has changed from a small letter to capital. I guessed my file case must have been ignored.

If you have this same challenge, below is what saved me:

git config core.ignorecase false

Go to your terminal and type that. Git has a configuration setting that tells it whether to be case sensitive or insensitive: core.ignorecase. To tell Git to be case-senstive, simply set this setting to false.

Hope this saved someone from trouble.
