If you have to set up a public repository with git you can follow the instruction found on the git-core tutorial
(Hint: Search for “Publishing your work”)
Things to keep in mind:
- Public repository are usually named as
project.gitand it’s a directory even if you can be mislead to think it’s a file for the extension (.git). Well, it’s not a file.
- you need to login in the remote host (the one from which you will share your repo) and initialized a local git database:
- ssh account compulsory
- git should be in the path and available in the web server
- You need an ssh account over there.
- Then you can push your changes to the new shiny repo.
The steps to do that:
- login the remote <public-host>
GIT_DIR=my-git.git git init
- mv project.git/hooks/post-update.sample project.git/hooks/post-update This make sure that after every push the git update-server-info is ran and your repo can be accessed in the public way.
git push <public-host>:/path/to/project.git master
