I have git version 1.8.4.msysgit.0 installed. If I run this as a daemon, where are the repositories located? (i.e. where do i do a mkdir foo.git; cd foo.git; git init --bare?)

How do I change where the (server) repositories live?

They're passed on the command-line of the daemon.

Run

git help daemon

in the console or the Run program (Win+r) dialog to get open the daemon's manual page.

You might also be interested in its --base-path command-line option.

I want to understand the best practice of organizing the GIT repositories. Let's say:
1. We are a large bank with many line of businesses and tons of application.
2. Each LOB has a large number of applications.

How many repositories shall I use? How do we organize the applications inside one repository? Any reference?

I read this page about git hook: http://git-scm.com/book/en/Customizing-Git-Git-Hooks and I still have some questions. I have a git server with some bare repos and I want create something like a continuos integration test so, I need to run a script when someone push on these repos. Main problem is that these repos are "bare" and doesn't contains any file. there is a way inside my script to "extract" files from a bare repo or i need to create a working copy?

If i create a separated working copy, how can i pull out this working copy inside my script? I tried something like this, but seems not working
cd /home/git/workingcopy/myawesomeappgit pull./run_test.sh

I just had the bare vs non-bare repo concept smack me in the face. Painful way to learn things, but I won't forget it any time soon. Since my remote repos are no longer work trees, how can I keep two bare repos in sync? This is primarily for DR purposes.

Here's more detail in case it'll help:
I have two rhel6 systems running git 1.7.1 that will be maintaining OS and web configuration files for a variety of teams, once I get the bugs in my understanding ironed out. One git server is in datacenter A (prod) where most of the updates will be occurring. Appropriate people will clone the bare repo, make their updates and push it back. The other git server is at our warm DR site. While rare, updates to this server should be possible.

I need to be able to fetch changes from the production git server and apply them to the DR one. When I tried it straight, I got the expected "fatal: This operation must be run in a work tree"

I suppose I could hack out a script to pull the configs down to a temp repo and push them back up to the DR one (and vice versa), but that seems like a kludge. As flexible and seemingly well thought out as git appears to be, I have to believe there's a better approach.

Could someone clue me in on what I'm missing or how a generic DR process is typically set up?

I'm trying to build Git hosting server for a group of people.

  1. I see there are Git hosting that give ability to users to create and manage their repositories. I want to give user ability to create and manage their repository only using http. But in the instruction of http protocol, user with write privileges must login in order to create the repositories.
    Is it can work with http protocol or it must be with ssh?

  2. I would like get recommendation about a software if exist. Is there any software, I can use, that give the ability to see weby and/or visually view status of repositories on the Git server, without cloning or pulling a snapshot from the git server to my local machine and without login to the git server?
