Git

The Git section of the Control Panel allows you to create Git repositories on your hosting account. It also allows you to install the GitList software that can be used to browse Git repositories using your browser.

Creating a Git repository

To create a Git repository on your account, you need to choose the subdomain and the web access path. They determine the HTTP address you will be using to access the Git repository remotely from another server or from your local computer.

All repositories will be stored in the /private/git.repostorage directory on your hosting account. You need to choose the name and description of the repository you are creating. A directory with the name of the repository will be created, for example /private/git.repostorage/name_of_repository 

The web address of the repository will be automatically password protected with а username and a randomly generated password. You can later change the authorized users using the Protection / Web Access Protection section of the hosting Control Panel.

Installing GitList

You can install GitList on your hosting account using the Install GitList tab in the Git section of the Control Panel. The GitList software allows you to browse Git repositories using your browser, view files under different revisions, commit history and diffs. GitList is free and open source software written in PHP.

To install GitList, you need to select the subdomain and the path to the directory where you wish to install it. You also need to specify the path to the Git repositories you wish to browse. If you have created the repositories using the hosting Control Panel, your repositories are in /private/git.repostorage.

The installation directory will be automatically password protected with a username and a randomly generated password. You can later change the auhtorized users using the Protection / Web Access Protection section of the hosting Control Panel.

GitList does not work properly with PHP 5.3 and 5.6, so you need PHP 7.4 or 8 in order to use this piece of software.
