I need to update git on our Bitbucket Server 7.21.8 (on Centos7), we currently use git 2.24.4 ( as I couldn't find a higher supported version in rpm). I have been looking in many places but still unable to find a supported patched version of git, preferebly one of the following:
Thanks for you help
Since IBM/RedHat decided to sunset the Centos project there has been very little updates for the packages.
I'd suggest you download it and compile it from the source:
I'd also advise you to test it first in a development environment, here are the steps:
1) remove the current 1.8x version:
sudo yum -y remove git
sudo yum -y remove git-*
2) Install dependencies:
sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"
sudo yum -y install wget curl perl-CPAN gettext-devel perl-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel curl-devel expat-devel getopt asciidoc xmlto docbook2X
3)Download version 2.34.6 from git:
tar -xvf git-2.34.6.tar.gz
sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install
5) test it:
$ git --version
3rd parties maintain some repositories with the latest version of git, however, I'd not recommend using them since they're not official. Please use it at your discretion:
sudo yum -y install https://packages.endpointdev.com/rhel/7/os/x86_64/endpoint-repo.x86_64.rpm
or from IUS.io which is backed by rackspace
I hope that heps.
