Git Version Control is now available in your cPanel. This means you can create and clone Git repositories right into your cPanel account. This has virtually thousands of helpful uses you can now take advantage of. It used to be a pain to create your own Git repositories, manage users, and hooks, etc. Now, a lot of that work has been done for you. Easy, right? Let's get started.

If you erase a repository after it's created, it erases the whole directory, including all the files you were working with.

How to Create a Git Repository with cPanel

Let's create a repository. Don't worry, you'll see how to "clone" an existing repository later.

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. Select Git Version Control under Files
  3. Click Create (if you haven't created any repositories yet, you'll be skipped ahead to the next step automatically)
  4. Toggle off the Clone a Repository button
  5. Fill in the file path to the new repository
  6. Provide a name for the repository as it will appear in your cPanel interface
  7. Click Create at the bottom

At this point, cPanel will go ahead and create your new repository and give you some helpful commands you can use to start using the repository right away.

How to "Clone" a Git Repository in cPanel

If you'd like to clone a repository from a site like Github or some other location on the web, all you need is the "Clone URL" and to follow these easy steps:

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. Select Git Version Control under Files
  3. Copy the clone URL into the Clone URL
  4. Fill in a file path for the repository (remember the cloned repository provides its own directory)
  5. Fill in a name for the repository as it will appear in your cPanel interface
  6. Click Create

Now you have cloned the repository into your cPanel account, and you can begin managing it right away.
