Bitbucket installation error- Git version not supported

LokanaSM May 25, 2018

Hi Team,

We are trying to install Bitbucket 5.10.1 on Redhat server version (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.4 (Maipo))
and getting below error, i have installed git by using yum install git and the git version is 1.8.3.1.
Could you please help on this.

Unsupported Git version found [1.8.3.1]. Please upgrade Git to a supported
version before installing Bitbucket.
See http://go.atlassian.com/installgit for more information.
NOTE: If you proceed without a working Git, Bitbucket won't be able to start
after installation until a working Git is found.
If you proceed without a working Git, Bitbucket won't be able to start after installation.
Are you sure you want to continue?
Yes [y, Enter], No [n]

Thanks
Sanjeev Kumar N

https://git-scm.com/download/linux mentions this issue (rhel shipping older versions) and suggests using IUS Repo (https://www.certdepot.net/rhel7-how-to-install-the-ius-community-repository/ )

f you know this kind of things, in 2018 and you work at  Atlassian why don't you update youre installer in 2019 ?

I am trying to install on our Centos  7.6.1810  version 6.1 of Bitbucket and I getting a link to this  http://go.atlassian.com/installgit    completely useless.

 

Why should we pay you for this kind of shit ? sorry I am updating our Confluence Jira and Bitbucket servers and I amreally pissed of about  the support you Atlassian guys deliver !!

Bye the way the link above also doesn't work !! Not at this moment.

I also find the answer misleading, because the "latest" version of git on CentOS 7.9 is git-1.8.3.1-24.el7_9.x86_64.rpm and does NOT work with Bitbucket.  Bitbucket will come up and refuse to start because the version is "too old".

We had to custom-build a version of git just to make it work, and now since there was a VULN announced, we are re-building the package to current build on scm.

But the thing is the version C79 distributes, has all security patches to-date. So it would be just feature releases of 2.8+ would be important.

However, Atlassian clearly says "We recommend using the most recent supported version of Git on both the Bitbucket instance and clients where possible," in https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/supported-platforms-776640981.html which is not exactly true.

There should be clear Bitbucket versions with matching Git versions to suggest what exactly will work, not "recommend" but "requires".

Thanks.
