Private GIT repositories (on DreamHost)

Monday, November 8th, 2010

This is yet another guide describing how to setup private HTTP-accessible Git repositories on Dreamhost using Git’s git-http-backend (a.k.a git’s Smart HTTP protocol). While similar guides can easily be found by the thousands in the Web (I’ve listed some of them in the Refereces section), I’ve found that some guides have outdated information or that the setup described in them could be improved. Thus, this guide tries to update, improve and consolidate the information dispersed in such sources.
