Originally the group was apache (changed it following some instruction
found on web).
> drwxrwsr-x 7 root apache 4096 Feb 21 14:22 simple.git
Then after I change it to something like this, it allow me to push.
> drwxrwsr-x 7 root ccusers 4096 Feb 21 14:22 simple.git
For example, I have the following setting for this project web-app:
[root@cmtoldshrdjk01 git]# stat /opt/git/web-app.git

Device: fd02h/64770d Inode: 131242 Links: 7

[root@cmtoldshrdjk01 git]# ls -ld /opt/git/web-app.git
drwxrwsr-x 7 root ccusers 4096 Jan 23 14:34 /opt/git/web-app.git
C:\Workspace\GIT\web-app>git push origin master
