Our new Linux server can also be very useful for making local, regular and systematic copies of our projects in a versioning system such as subversion (svn) or git. Let’s start with git.

$ sudo apt-get install git

we check that everything is correctly installed with

$ git

sudo git config --global user.name "mcaliman"
sudo git config --global user.email "mcaliman@gmail.com"

check with

git config --list
