This follows on from a previous question of mine but is different insofar as it specifically concerns Git.
When I clone my Git repo on my serer, it dumps the repo successfully but with CHMOD 0755 and, crucially, an owner/group stat of "0/0".
(In my previous question I had assumed this was the server's doing. When I made a folder manually, i.e.
mkdir ..., I got the same result, but the answer came that this was because I was doing it as the root user. Changing to the user who owns the CPanel account in question solved the problem.)
However, the problem continues for Git, even though I am running the clone operation as the CPanel user, not root. So:
sudo -u dev -i echo $USER //<-- "dev" git clone https://github.com/etc...
What's weird is that I don't get this problem if I make a folder via FileZilla, even though FZ is connected as the same user, i.e. dev.
Any help appreciated.
