This blog post will describe how to setup a central repository where everybody pulls from and pushes to. This is actually the default work flow in Subversion.

Create a “git” user on your server.

sudo adduser git
nano /etc/group
sudo mkdir /opt/git_projects
sudo chown git.git /opt/git_projects
sudo chmod 2770 /opt/git_projects
cd /opt/git_projects

Git has a naming convention that repositories that you share with others have a “.git” suffix. Local repositories have just a name. To create a git bare (also called shared remote) repository do the following on the command line.

su git
mkdir example.git
