If you are running Drupal 8 or greater on Acquia Cloud and get an error on the status report like -
The directory docroot/../config/default does not exist.
You can create the
config directory at the same level as
docroot and commit it through git. Also note, you cannot commit empty directories in git, so you must add a small file - typically a text file named
.gitkeep to the directory and commit it.
See Configuration Management for additional information.
