GitList Installation

  • Download GitList from gitlist.org and decompress to your /var/www/gitlist folder, or anywhere else you want to place GitList.
  • Rename the config.ini-example file to config.ini.
  • Open up the config.ini and configure your installation. You'll have to provide where your repositories are located and the base GitList URL (in our case, http://localhost/gitlist).
  • Create the cache folder and give read/write permissions to your web server user:
cd /var/www/gitlist
mkdir cache
chmod 777 cache

That's it, installation complete!

Webserver configuration

Apache is the "default" webserver for GitList. You will find the configuration inside the .htaccess file. However, nginx and lighttpd are also supported.

nginx server.conf

server {
    server_name MYSERVER;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/MYSERVER.access_log main;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/MYSERVER.error_log debug_http;

    root /var/www/DIR;
    index index.php;

#   auth_basic "Restricted";
#   auth_basic_user_file rhtpasswd;

    location = /robots.txt {
        allow all;
        log_not_found off;
        access_log off;
    }

    location ~* ^/index.php.*$ {
       fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
       include fastcgi.conf;
    }

    location / {
        try_files $uri @gitlist;
    }

    location ~* \.(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico)$ {
    add_header Vary "Accept-Encoding";
        expires max;
        try_files $uri @gitlist;
        tcp_nodelay off;
        tcp_nopush on;
    }

#   location ~* \.(git|svn|patch|htaccess|log|route|plist|inc|json|pl|po|sh|ini|sample|kdev4)$ {
#       deny all;
#   }

    location @gitlist {
        rewrite ^/.*$ /index.php;
    }
}

lighttpd

# GitList is located in /var/www/gitlist
server.document-root        = "/var/www"

url.rewrite-once = (
    "^/gitlist/web/.+" => "$0",
    "^/gitlist/favicon\.ico$" => "$0",
    "^/gitlist(/[^\?]*)(\?.*)?" => "/gitlist/index.php$1$2"
)
