Hosting a Git repo on your own VPS server is a simple. Though paying for GitHub to host a private repo does not cost very much you may have reasons to keep your source repositories on your own server. You might enjoying do things yourself, have reasons to keep your source on your own server or would like to simply have a place to manage your personal projects. The following will walk you through the process of creating and hosting a git repository on your own server.
On your server create a directory where you will store your repository. I'd image you'll create more than one over time so name the directory something appropriate such as
repos. If you are just starting off and it is only you I suggest for simplicity you create a directory called
repos under your home directory.
For our example here I'm going to create a repo called
project on a machine with the domain name of
example-server.com. My username for this example will be
user. Before continuing make sure you can ssh easily into your account on your server. In our example you would need to be able to execute the following command.
