Failed to start Git process

I tried to push to Bitbucket with PhpStorm but is send to me an error message like this: Failed to start Git process. Yesterday it worked but now something is wrong. What can I do to fix this error?

  • Project commits too many files
  • PHPStorm 8 - Cannot run program “git”
  • Setup PHP project using PhpStorm, Git, SourceTree, Bitbucket
  • Phpstorm git attempts to commit workspace.xml
  • How to compare local with remote git repo in PhpStorm?
  • PhpStorm - Export files changed between two commits under Git
  • Stop PhpStorm from automatically staging deleted files to git
  • IntelliJ IDEA / WebStorm: how to make all files unselected by default in the commit dialog?
  • One Solution collect form web for “Failed to start Git process”

    This sounds like your system (or you) updated the Git executable and PhpStorm is now unable to locate or access it. I also got the same error after updating Git while PhpStorm tried to show the version history.

    Your Git settings inside PhpStorm should look similar to this:

    PhpStorm git settings

    As you can see, the path to the Git executable is /use/local/bin/git which should be standard for all Unix-based systems. Please verify, that there is an executable in the field. If yes, click the test button and PhpStorm will tell you what’s wrong with the file.

    Also try to clear the caches and restart PhpStorm with the Invalidate Caches/Restart option under the File menu.
