Working with git repositories
Initialize bare git repository
Use these commands to initialize a bare (empty) git repository. This is usualy a good idea when you want to create a central repository.
mkdir /var/git-repo/project.gif cd /var/git-repo/project.gif git init --bare
Configure git groups and users
Also make sure that the developers will have access to the repo. This can be done by adding them to a group developers and giving permissions to the git repository directory.
If the developers group does not exist yet, you can create it with this command:
Then add the user to this group
useradd -G developers username
usermod -a -G developers username
Give access to the repository with this command:
sudo chown -R root.developers project.git sudo chmod -R g+w project.git/
Work with local git repository
After that you need to create a local git directory with git init. From that one you can do:
Add remote repository to your local:
git remote add origin email@example.com:/var/git-repo/project.gif
If you make a mistake you can remove invalid remote origins with this command:
git remote rm origin
Do some work and:
git add . git commit -m "Initial import" git push origin master
The repository will be avaibale to your co-developers and can be cloned to their own local git repo.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/cache/git/project.gif
