I've setup my own VM running Ubuntu 10.04, LAMP and ISPConfig 3. I would also like to add Git, and give access to to closed group of developers working on their own private projects, essentially operating it as a shared hosting production server.

Before I go installing software on the server gung-ho, I would like to know;

a) Is this possible?

b) Is it a good idea? (How else could one achieve a shared but private environment?)

c) Is the installation of Git any different in this situation?

You should check gitolite, it is probably the easiest way to set up a shared Git environment (I assume you have SSH access and full control over your VM). Gitolite uses SSH keys to authenticate users and allows to set up privilege separation.

Excellent, thank you! Looks like that's what I was after. – Akahadaka Jul 10 '12 at 14:02
