Update (2013-06-20): Due to unresolvable issues with OpenSSH on certain Windows installations, we are discontinuing WindowsGit maintenance
Note: Version 1.1.0 is now available. Users of 1.0 should upgrade.
Connecting to the server
- Download the Key Tool on your client computer(s) to get or create your ‘public key’.
- On the server, go to Start > CopSSH > CopSSH Control Panel. In the control panel, click the ‘Users’ tab, then ‘Add’. Choose the ‘git’ user and accept all defaults. (You only have to do this once)
- In the Users tab, select ‘git’, then click ‘Keys’. Click Import, then paste in the key you copied in step 2. Click Apply, then click Apply again.
- You can now connect to the server. I personally recommend using SmartGit, as it has a very easy-to-use interface and works on all platforms. When connecting to the server, you will need to enter the Repository URL from step #3 of the following section.
Creating a repository
- (On the server) Go to Start > Cop SSH > 02. Start a Unix BASH Shell
git init --bare /home/git/myapp.gitand hit enter.
- You’re done. The repository URL will be
ssh://git@yourservernameoripaddress/home/git/myapp.git(Substitute the IP address or domain name of your server)
Please note - Administrator privileges are required to install this on the server, and UAC must be disabled.
