<h2>NAME</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<p>git-http-backend -
Server side implementation of Git over HTTP
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div id="content">
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_synopsis">SYNOPSIS</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="verseblock">
<pre class="content"><em>git http-backend</em></pre>
<div class="attribution">
</div></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_description">DESCRIPTION</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>A simple CGI program to serve the contents of a Git repository to Git
clients accessing the repository over http:// and https:// protocols.
The program supports clients fetching using both the smart HTTP protocol
and the backwards-compatible dumb HTTP protocol, as well as clients
pushing using the smart HTTP protocol.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>It verifies that the directory has the magic file
"git-daemon-export-ok", and it will refuse to export any Git directory
that hasn&#8217;t explicitly been marked for export this way (unless the
<code>GIT_HTTP_EXPORT_ALL</code> environmental variable is set).</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>By default, only the <code>upload-pack</code> service is enabled, which serves
<em>git fetch-pack</em> and <em>git ls-remote</em> clients, which are invoked from
<em>git fetch</em>, <em>git pull</em>, and <em>git clone</em>. If the client is authenticated,
the <code>receive-pack</code> service is enabled, which serves <em>git send-pack</em>
clients, which is invoked from <em>git push</em>.</p></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_services">SERVICES</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>These services can be enabled/disabled using the per-repository
configuration file:</p></div>
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
http.getanyfile
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This serves Git clients older than version 1.6.6 that are unable to use the
upload pack service. When enabled, clients are able to read
any file within the repository, including objects that are
no longer reachable from a branch but are still present.
It is enabled by default, but a repository can disable it
by setting this configuration item to <code>false</code>.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
http.uploadpack
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This serves <em>git fetch-pack</em> and <em>git ls-remote</em> clients.
It is enabled by default, but a repository can disable it
by setting this configuration item to <code>false</code>.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
http.receivepack
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This serves <em>git send-pack</em> clients, allowing push. It is
disabled by default for anonymous users, and enabled by
default for users authenticated by the web server. It can be
disabled by setting this item to <code>false</code>, or enabled for all
users, including anonymous users, by setting it to <code>true</code>.
</p>
</dd>
</dl></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_url_translation">URL TRANSLATION</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>To determine the location of the repository on disk, <em>git http-backend</em>
concatenates the environment variables PATH_INFO, which is set
automatically by the web server, and GIT_PROJECT_ROOT, which must be set
manually in the web server configuration. If GIT_PROJECT_ROOT is not
set, <em>git http-backend</em> reads PATH_TRANSLATED, which is also set
automatically by the web server.</p></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_examples">EXAMPLES</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>All of the following examples map <code>http://$hostname/git/foo/bar.git</code>
to <code>/var/www/git/foo/bar.git</code>.</p></div>
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
Apache 2.x
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Ensure mod_cgi, mod_alias, and mod_env are enabled, set
GIT_PROJECT_ROOT (or DocumentRoot) appropriately, and
create a ScriptAlias to the CGI:
</p>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>SetEnv GIT_PROJECT_ROOT /var/www/git
SetEnv GIT_HTTP_EXPORT_ALL
ScriptAlias /git/ /usr/libexec/git-core/git-http-backend/</code></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To enable anonymous read access but authenticated write access,
require authorization for both the initial ref advertisement (which we
detect as a push via the service parameter in the query string), and the
receive-pack invocation itself:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} service=git-receive-pack [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /git-receive-pack$
RewriteRule ^/git/ - [E=AUTHREQUIRED:yes]
&lt;LocationMatch "^/git/"&gt;
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from env=AUTHREQUIRED
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Git Access"
Require group committers
Satisfy Any
...
&lt;/LocationMatch&gt;</code></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>If you do not have <code>mod_rewrite</code> available to match against the query
string, it is sufficient to just protect <code>git-receive-pack</code> itself,
like:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>&lt;LocationMatch "^/git/.*/git-receive-pack$"&gt;
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Git Access"
Require group committers
...
&lt;/LocationMatch&gt;</code></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In this mode, the server will not request authentication until the
client actually starts the object negotiation phase of the push, rather
than during the initial contact. For this reason, you must also enable
the <code>http.receivepack</code> config option in any repositories that should
accept a push. The default behavior, if <code>http.receivepack</code> is not set,
is to reject any pushes by unauthenticated users; the initial request
will therefore report <code>403 Forbidden</code> to the client, without even giving
an opportunity for authentication.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To require authentication for both reads and writes, use a Location
directive around the repository, or one of its parent directories:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>&lt;Location /git/private&gt;
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Private Git Access"
Require group committers
...
&lt;/Location&gt;</code></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To serve gitweb at the same url, use a ScriptAliasMatch to only
those URLs that <em>git http-backend</em> can handle, and forward the
rest to gitweb:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>ScriptAliasMatch \

Similar to the above, but Apache can be used to return static
files that are stored on disk. On many systems this may
be more efficient as Apache can ask the kernel to copy the

normally need to be changed, but may be helpful if you are fetching from
a repository with an extremely large number of refs. The value can be
specified with a unit (e.g., <code>100M</code> for 100 megabytes). The default is
10 megabytes.</p></div>
