How to Install and Configure Git on CentOS 7

Installation

First, you’ll follow a simple best practice: ensuring the existing packages are up to date before installing anything new.

yum -y update


Then it’s a matter of just running one command for installation via yum:

yum -y install git


Once this command is complete, git will be installed and ready to use!

git --version


Configuration


To prevent any commit errors, it’s a good idea to setup your user for git. We’ll change to the user testuser (which we’re assuming is a user on your server) with the e-mail address testuser@example.com.

su testuser
git config --global user.name "testuser"
git config --global user.email "testuser@example.com"


Next we’ll verify the configuration changes by viewing the .gitconfig .

git config --list
