Github clone. You can install portable github system into Unix/Linux.
Shared Server must support Linux/Unix, Apache, SuExec, CGI, and PHP5(CGI mode).
(PHP is not necessary, if PHP exists, the install process is easy because you do not need to think about permissions.)
Many shared servers support these, so you will be able to find a suitable server easily.
First you need to download gitprep.
Expand the zip file. You will see the following directory.
Rename the gitprep-latest directory to gitprep.
gitprep-latest -> gitprep
GitPrep needs the git command. You must install git by yourself.
You must add the correct git command path to the gitprep.conf config file.
[basic] ;;; Git command path git_bin=/home/yourname/local/bin/git
You upload these directory into server document root by FTP.
Access the following URL by browser.
http://(Your host name)/gitprep/setup/setup.php
(If you don't access PHP file or don't have PHP, you can use CGI script please set this CGI script permission to 755)
http://(Your host name)/gitprep/setup/setup.cgi.
Click Setup button once and wait about 5 minutes.
If you see result, click "Go to Application".
If you receive an internal server error, look at the log file (gitprep/log/production.log) to see what the problem occurred.
GitPrep has its own web server, so you can start using the application very easily. This is much better than the way shown above because you do not need to setup the Apache environment and performance will be much better.
(You can also install GitPrep into Cygwin. If you want to install GitPrep into Cygwin, gcc4 and make program are needed.)
Create a gitprep user. This is not necessary, but recommended.
useradd gitprep su - gitprep cd ~
Download tar.gz archive, expand it and change directory.
curl -kL https://github.com/yuki-kimoto/gitprep/archive/latest.tar.gz > gitprep-latest.tar.gz tar xf gitprep-latest.tar.gz mv gitprep-latest gitprep cd gitprep
To setup GitPrep, execute the following command. All of the needed modules will be installed.
Run the test to check if the setup process was successful or not.
If "All tests successful" is shown, the setup process was successful.
Same as Shared Server's Configuration section.
You can start the application by running the provided gitprep script. The application is run in the background and the port is 10020 by default.
Then access the following URL.
If you want to change the port, edit gitprep.conf. If you cannot access this port, you might change the firewall settings.
You can stop the application by adding the --stop option.
You can manage the application from the root user.
Start the application
sudo -u gitprep /home/gitprep/gitprep/gitprep
Stop the application
sudo -u gitprep /home/gitprep/gitprep/gitprep --stop
If you want to start the application when the OS starts, add the start application command to rc.local(Linux).
If you want to make it easy to manage gitprep, then create a run script.
mkdir -p /webapp echo '#!/bin/sh' > /webapp/gitprep echo 'su - gitprep -c "/home/gitprep/gitprep/gitprep $*"' >> /webapp/gitprep chmod 755 /webapp/gitprep
You can start and stop the application with the following command.
# Start or Restart /webapp/gitprep # Stop /webapp/gitprep --stop
If you are a developer, you can start the application in development mode.
Then access the following URL.
If you have git, it is easy to install from git.
git clone git://github.com/yuki-kimoto/gitprep.git
It is useful to write configuration in gitprep.my.conf, not gitprep.conf.
