Git Version control systems is my favorite share and collaborate coding projects. Not just me Git is one of the most popular version control.

Further than my noted I will show the step installing and configuring Git on an Ubuntu 18.04 and this could be available to any version of Ubuntu.

Step 1 — Update Default Packages

Logged into your Ubuntu 18.04 server as a sudo non-root user, first update your default packages.

sudo apt update

Step 2 — Install Git

sudo apt install git

Step 3 — Confirm Successful Installation

You can confirm that you have installed Git correctly by running this command and receiving output similar to the following:

git --version Output git version 2.17.1

Step 4 — Set Up Git

Now that we have Git installed and to prevent warnings, you should configure it with your information.

git config --global "Your Name" git config --global "[email protected]" If you need to edit this file, you can use a text editor such as nano:

nano ~/.gitconfig ~/.gitconfig contents [user] name = Your Name email = [email protected]

This is should be working, if you found any issue please let's me know on below comment.
