I'm trying to install git on dreamhost. Currently my server is running 220.127.116.11 and the current version is 18.104.22.168. There is a page on how to do an install using gitosis as access control: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Gitosis. But I am finding it quite hard to follow probably because my general lack of knowledge. The first step is to create new shell account for git and then to use that account to install git and gitosis. I am getting stuck on the git installation. The article gives the following commands as the isntall method:
tar xzf git-22.214.171.124.tar.gz
./configure -prefix=$HOME NO_MMAP=1
This all works, but then when I checked to see whether the version had been updated on dreamhost using git --version, nothing had changed. Any ideas what I'm missing here?
