Title : How to publish a git repository on http Author: Solène Date : 07 October 2016 Tags : unix git Here is an how-to in order to make a git repository available for cloning through a simple http server. This method only allow people to fetch the repository, not to push. I wanted to set-up this to get my code, I don't plan to have any commit on it from other people at this time so it's enough. In a folder publicly available from your http server clone your repository in bare mode. As explained in the [https://git-scm.com/book/tr/v2/Git-on-the-Server-The-Protocols](man page): $ cd /var/www/htdocs/some-path/ $ git clone --bare /path/to/git_project gitproject.git $ cd gitproject.git $ git update-server-info $ mv hooks/post-update.sample hooks/post-update $ chmod o+x hooks/post-update Then you will be able to clone the repository with $ git clone https://your-hostname/some-path/gitproject.git I've lost time because I did not execute **git update-server-info** so the clone wasn't possible.
