I found my self needing git to pull down scripts for ansible. Thus this is how to configure git on Centos 7.


  1. # yum install git -y
  2. git --version
  3. You should see a version like this. Install Done!

git version


  1. Next lets configure it!
  2. # git config --global user.name "Your Name"
  3. # git config –global user.email “[email protected]
  4.  # git config –list
  5. You should see the following, and we are done!


  1. Lets create a new location for our git repository
  2. mkdir /git
  3. cd /git
  4. git init
  5. now lets pull down a configure we want to use.
  6. the command git clone (URL) clones a entire repository down to your server or workstation.
