Introduction

Git is a an open source, version control system that is used for software development and other version control tasks. As a distributed revision control system it is aimed at speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.

Official project website: https://git-scm.com/


Installation

Like always, first of all, we recommend to update your server. It can be done simply executing:

apt-get update

Now we can install git using apt-get:

apt-get install git-core -y

At time when this tutorial is written newest version in Time4VPS repositories is 2.7.4. You always can check your git's version with command:

git --version


Configuration

After installation we can start configuring git, first of all you need to setup your user for git. We will use user test with email address [email protected] for this tutorial:

git config --global user.name "test"
git config --global user.email "[email protected]"
If you forgot or want to change some details you always can modify git's configuration file:

nano .gitconfig


Conclusion

That's it! You had installed and set up git on your server.
