We can setup our own Git repo on VPS, it’s very easy. After the setup, we can access our repo as:
//clone our repo to local, we use git as username and domain as the server domain(like unieagle.net). git clone git@domain:a_repo.git
The simple steps are as follows:
- add user ‘git’ on your host
- setup ssh access for your local computer to your host as ‘git’
- create and init your repo on your server
- access your repo in local computer
add user ‘git’ on your host
ssh login into your host as root, and do the following:
useradd -d /home/git -m git passwd git
setup ssh access for your local computer to your host as user ‘git’
in your local computer, do the following:
if you have no rsa keys, you need to generate one first:
cd ~/.ssh ssh-keygen -t rsa
this will generate id_rsa and id_rsa.pub in your ~/.ssh directory
if your key name is not
id_rsa you need to add your key with:
with these keys, do the following:
cat id_rsa.pub | ssh git@domain 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'
then you are able to run
ssh git@domain without your password if everything goes well.
if not, check your host with permissions of /home/git, it should belongs to user git.
create your own repo
this is done on your host
ssh git@domain mkdir your_first_repo.git cd your_first_repo.git git --bare init
then your git repo is setup fullly
access your repo on your local computer
you can clone your repo to local using:
git clone git@domain:your_first_repo.git
then all works done. enjoy it.
Or, if you have a repo already exists in your local computer and want to using the repo on your host, just setup the remote and up stream of your local repo, it will works well, as following:
//assume you are already in your local repo directory git remote add origin git@domain:your_first_repo.git git push --set-upstream origin master
