    Has any one done and can recommend a source version control system that can be operated in a cpanel environment without introducing security or management concerns (by which I mean, we can install it and forget it - just let our customers use it).

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I've setup SVN manually to work with cPanel, works well.

    Is this for a single site or for multiple sites?
    Do you want to have multiple repositories per site?
    Do you want to allow customers to create their own logins and passwords for each repository?

    By "respositories per site" do you mean per customer account?

    I would imagine that customers would want multiple repositories certainly, and they would want to define access permissions for different team members, so yes, logins would be important too I think.

    How did you go about it?

    git + gitosis is a rather flexible and powerful setup. Plus it doesn't require modifying Apache, which Subversion setups often do.

    Any chance of linking to or creating a howto? Also how it is installed and utilized meaning by root via SSH, or cpanel accounts, etc....

    I tried to get redmine and GIT working, but it doesn't fully work for me. I'm willing to go an alternative route... but unfortunately need more information as to how...

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Once we know that it is easier to provide an informative answer.

    Was looking for the proper way to setup GIT on a CPanel server and connecting to it remotely to download the repositories. I hired some server administrators to do so but it took them quite some time to get it setup. However it doesn't fully function. I'm looking to uninstall what they did and attempt again from scratch but hopefully the proper way to avoid any conflicts with CPanel. This was initially done via root, but if possible would like to utilize GIT via a cpanel user account instead of root. Not sure the best way to do this since most instructions are on normal dedicated servers that don't have Cpanel.

    I created a new post here:

    I had an old post here, but I think my over explanation may have scared people off lol:

    Thank you again for taking the time to answer.
