Planning to migrate stash v3.11 to Bitbucket 4.11, stuck at git upgrade as the minimum version should be greater than 1.8 for BitBucket 4.11 but on Centos 6.2, latest that we get is 1.7.10.

Tried to build it from source but again facing dependency issues with libssh2 which needs to be >= 1.4.2,Any suggestions as to how to take care of git upgrade on centos 6.2 or should i migrate the server to Centos 7 to resolve this?

i tried all those and i get the below message when i try to install the dependent libraries

yum install curl-devel expat-devel gettext-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel gcc perl-ExtUtils

Error: Package: libcurl-7.19.7-37.el6_5.3.x86_64 (updates)

           Requires: libssh2(x86-64) >= 1.4.2

           Installed: libssh2-1.2.2-7.el6_1.1.x86_64 (@CentOS/6.2)

               libssh2(x86-64) = 1.2.2-7.el6_1.1

 

when i tried to compile and install libssh2(x86-64) >= 1.4.2 i get the below error saying there is again other dependency

# rpm -Uvh libssh2-1.4.3-10.el7_2.1.x86_64.rpm
warning: libssh2-1.4.3-10.el7_2.1.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID f4a80eb5: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) is needed by libssh2-1.4.3-10.el7_2.1.x86_64

 

seems like its getting into a loop of dependencies.

Git itself is quite self-contained.   It might work to just install the Centos7 Git RPM, but otherwise leave everything else on Centos6.

Here's the Centos7 Git RPM:   http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/Packages/git-1.8.3.1-6.el7_2.1.x86_64.rpm

(Note:  you'd then need to carefully watch this RPM for any security updates, since your Centos6 package system won't receive them.)

 

p.s.  I invite you to try my add-on:  Bit-Booster for Bitbucket Server

Hi Sylvie,Tried installing the rpm package but with no success.Below is the error
