Here’s a simple quick tip about GitList setup.

Trying to install the latest version of GitList , I faced a problem with the error message below

Please, edit the config file and provide your repositories directory

My git repositories are located under the directory


and here’s below what I did to fix it up

First, modify groups of Apache user

# usermod -G gitusergroup apache

Then fix your git home folder permissions like this

# chmod -v g=rx /home/gituser
# ls -d /home/gituser
drwxr-x--- 4 git git 4096 Oct 29 10:26 /home/gituser

Refresh the page then start browsing your git repos 😉
