  1. Download the latest release of git from https://github.com/git/git/releases.
  2. Log in to your Web Hosting account via SSH. For more info, see Connect to your server or shared hosting account with SSH.
  3. Unpack the tar file.

    Note: Throughout these code snippets, we'll use the tar file "git-1.8.1.2.tar.gz" as an example. You need to make sure your code matches the tar file you downloaded.


    tar -zxf git-1.8.1.2.tar.gz
  4. Browse to the newly created directory for the tar file:
    cd git-1.8.1.2
  5. Confirm that the tar file is installed:
    ~/opt/usr/bin/git --version
    git version 1.8.1.2
  6. Get git on your path and tell Git not to do SSL verification. If you haven't already, create a ~/.bash_profile file and add the following to it:
    export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true
    PATH=$PATH:$HOME/opt/usr/bin
    export PATH
    GIT_EXEC_PATH=$HOME/opt/usr/libexec/git-core
    export GIT_EXEC_PATH
  7. Make sure these settings are working correctly by running the following command:
    source ~/.bash_profile
  8. Check the version:
    git --version
    git version 1.8.1.2
  9. Git is now installed on your Web Hosting Account.
