Where can I find a patched RPM package of git for Bitbucket Server 7.21.8?


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:

Hi Naushad,


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:


4) Compile

tar -xvf git-2.34.6.tar.gz

cd git-2.34.6
make configure
sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make
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:


to install:

sudo yum -y install

or from which is backed by rackspace


I hope that heps.




Thanks Luiz,

I dowloaded and compiled it from the source. It worked.
