I confirmed both that git is in the apache user's path, as well as
tried to remove the git subdirectory from the repo path.
rpac...@huxley:~$ ps -ef | grep apache

rpachos 2495 2376 0 10:30 pts/0 00:00:00 grep apache
rpac...@huxley:~$ sudo su - www-data
[sudo] password for rpachos:
$ which git
I also checked the webserver logs to see if perhaps there might be an
error message present that might help, no luck there. Any additional
suggestions as to things that I can check/try?
