Do I need to install GIT with Stash?

If I use Stash and installed in Windows, do I still need to install GIT? Is GIT included in Stash? How to connect Stash to my existing GIT repositories (out of Stash, existing before Stash)?

Yes, you need to install git. It'll read your existing repos fine.

After I create a repository (called stash) in Stash, it gives this link:http://localhost:7990/projects/STAS/repos/stash/browse

And this command: git clone http://admin@localhost:7990/scm/stas/stash.git

The above is a web URL. So where is the actually directory location of the above repository?

If Stash used my pre-installed GIT, how does Stash know where is my GIT? How are they connected?


To your first subquestion - location of git repository in stash could be retrieved using Stash addon Repository System Info. Anyway, I would not operate on that internal repositories.

Stash uses git executable, not the existing repositories. You need to push their content to Stash repositories.

The Repository System Info plugin was deprecated in 2.7 and will not be supported in Stash 3.0 as the functionality is now included in Stash core. The location on disk is shown on the repository settings page to System Administrators only

If you install git properly, it should end up in a place in your system path, so it'll be available to any program running in the standard environment

As for your repositorys, they will land <where you told Stash to store them>/project/*
