If you haven’t installed gitolite by using
gitolite.sh then please verify if you can connect to git server properly from PHP user.
For example, login with PHP-user by using following command to your terminal. Or use sudo command like sudo su - PHPUSER where PHPUSER will be a linux-user like nobody, www-data.
Next, check PHP user’s privilege by executing following command:
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org | grep gitolite-admin. (Please replace
git with your gitolite-username and
ac.example.com with your gitolite-domain.)
Your output should contain
R W gitolite-admin.
gitolite.sh script fails
This script needs to sudo privilege to run. Please try running the script with sudo.
This may be due to a different Linux distro. We currently support only Ubuntu distro. We will soon release support for other ditros
Please check your git username. Chances are git user already exists.
Repository is not updating automatically
Make sure you do not have an empty repository. Make a new initial commit in the empty repository or make an empty commit by:
git commit --allow-empty
