Git is a free and open source distributed version control system. In this article, we will demonstrate how to install Git on a CentOS server.
First of all we need to make sure that we have set up needed packages on our system. Use following command to set up needed packages before obtaining Git resource.
yum install curl-devel expat-devel gettext-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel yum install gcc perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker
Now eliminate any prior set up of Git through RPM file or Yum program. If your older version is also compiled through resource, then miss this step.
yum remove git
Use the following command to download Git 2.0.5.
cd /usr/src wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-2.0.5.tar.gz tar xzf git-2.0.5.tar.gz
Now use following command to compile source code.
cd git-2.0.5 make prefix=/usr/local/git all make prefix=/usr/local/git install echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/git/bin" >> /etc/bashrc source /etc/bashrc
Now Git will be successfully installed on your system,Use the following command to check Git version:
git --version git version 2.0.5
