I'm getting confused about how to have a Git Server in my own machine.

The thing is that I need to setup a central server with all Git repos, like Subversion. What is the my best option?

Install Gitosis?

Best Regards,

PS: Sorry my bad english.

Well that actually depends on a couple of factors..

if it is a multiuser environment on which you DON'T necessarily want all people that have GIT repos to also have SHELL access, then i would recommend Gitolite. (Gitosis is almost as good as dead now).

much like gitosis, Gitolite allows for multiuser envs with many repos and easy user and privilege management by using ssh keys, without the need for the users to have shell access to the server.
