[git-users] GIT: cloning from godaddy.

2012-03-25 Thread Whitehorse06
Hello

I have  shared hosting account with godaddy. I am trying  to install
git.


I have followed the following steps from the following URL

http://dren.ch/git-on-godaddy/


1. I have ssh setup and I can access. for example my FTP login name is
ftpuser if I try ssh ftpu...@mydomain.com  no issues and it is
working. ~/.bashrc is executed perfectly


2. I have downloaded latest binary (git-1.7.8.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm  )
from  http://pkgs.repoforge.org/git/   and installed as per
instruction

mkdir ~/opt  cd ~/opt
rpm2cpio ~/git-1.7.8.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm  | cpio -id
~/opt/usr/bin/git --version
git version 1.7.8


3. I have configured /.bashrc with the following

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/opt/usr/bin
export PATH

GIT_EXEC_PATH=$HOME/opt/usr/libexec/git-core
export GIT_EXEC_PATH

4. I have verified as per below steps and it is working on the shared
host

 mkdir ~/testrepo
cd ~/testrepo
echo 'This is a test'  README.txt
git init
warning: templates not found /usr/share/git-core/templates
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/content/XX/YYY/git/.git/
git add README.txt
git commit -m 'initial version'
[master (root-commit) 5214f3b] initial version
 1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
 create mode 100644 README.txt

5. But I am unable to clone from the shared host to my local PC

I have tried to the following commands

a) git clone ssh://ftpu...@118.139.xxx.5/~/git/Read me.txt
   (note xxx) is changed for privacy reasons.

I get the following error message

Cloning into Readme.txt...
fatal: Invalid gitfile format: /var/chroot/home/content/85/91334343/
git/Readme.txt
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

b) So I have followed the following steps

http://www.adac-solutions.com/?p=94

and created a config file


$ cd ~/.ssh
$ vi config
# Put the following in your config file change myhost and myid
with your
# GoDaddy host and userid
Host myHostAlias
HostName 118.139.xxx.5
User ftpuser
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/myid@goDaddy

doubt: I have used IdentityFile as follows
IdentityFile  ~/.ssh/id_rsa

This id_rsa file is located on my local PC . Is the steps correct for
IdentityFile and Host, Hostname, User?


when I tried the following command, it works (I could able to login)

ssh myHostAlias

but  I am not sure how to clone?
When i tried the following

git clone -u  /var/chroot/home/content/85/91334343/git/Readme.txt
myHostAlias
Cloning into myHostAlias...
/var/chroot/home/content/85/91334343/git/Readme.txt  '/home/rams/
domain/git/test/myHostAlias': 1: /var/chroot/home/content/85/91334343/
git/Readme.txt: not found
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly


I am struck. What is causing the problem?

Thank you in advance.

Ignoring for a moment the fact that README.txt and Readme.txt are two
totally different files, they both appear to be text files rather than Git
repositories.  I think the command you actually want is:

git clone ftpu...@118.139.xxx.5:~/testrepo

Git is not Subversion, it's a DVCS so you can't just fetch one single
file, instead, you have to *clone* (that's why it's called `git clone`
after all) the whole repository (but see below).  Consequently, you
have to use the path to a repository with `git clone`.

Technically, `git clone` can do what's called a shallow clone, that
is, it's able to fetch not the whole history but just the specified
number of commits from a given remote branch and all associated objects,
so you can kind of achieve what `svn checkout` can yield when run with
the URL of a root directory of a project.
But if you intend to do any serious work against a repository,
shallow cloning is not a recommended way to go, it's intended for cases
when you just want to fetch a source tree for the purpose of building it
or something like this.
