I am trying to setup Apache on my git server and authenticated pull / push. 
I realise there are loads of hosting services that do this for me but I 
would like to do it myself.
There is not a lot of information on this in books but I have found several 
tutorials and the git-http-backend man pages. But I am really looking for 
step by step instructions that work.
So ...
I have switched on httpd on a centos6.4 VM. On this machine are a few bare 
git repositories.
[vobadm@centos64 git_repos]$ pwd
[vobadm@centos64 git_repos]$ ls -l
total 20
drwxrwxrwx. 7 vobadm users 4096 Oct  9 17:53 csg2.git
drwxrwsr-x. 7 vobadm users 4096 Jan 30  2013 dev_maven.git
-rw-r--r--. 1 vobadm users   47 Oct  9 13:42 groups
drwxrwxrwx. 7 vobadm users 4096 Sep  9 09:39 norriquest.git
-rw-r--r--. 1 vobadm users   43 Oct  9 13:41 passwords
[vobadm@centos64 git_repos]$ 
The two of interest are csg2.git and norriquest.git.

In httpd.conf, I have
ScriptAlias /git/ "/usr/libexec/git-core/git-http-backend/"
SetEnv GIT_PROJECT_ROOT "/opt/git_repos"
#<Directory "/opt/git_repos">
#       Options None
#       AllowOverride None
#       Order allow,deny
#       Allow from all

# Only required if you are using repository level permissions
 <Location /csg2.git>
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "New Repo Access"
        AuthUserFile /opt/git_repos/passwords
        AuthGroupFile /opt/git_repos/groups
        Require group csg2
I commented out the directory part to see if that made a difference - after 
an apache restart - it did not.

In the groups file is
[vobadm@centos64 git_repos]$ cat groups
csg2: jnorris
csg2: vobadm
norriquest: vobadm
Then on my PC, as jnorris (group HomeUsers)

error: failed to push some refs to '*http://centos64/git/csg2.git* 

So, what have I done wrong? I am not asked for any authentication and yet I 
believe I have set up apache for authentication on both read and write.
>From what I can discover the unpacker error suggests that there is a 
corruption in bare git and it needs a git repack but that has not helped.
