How can I set up my own local Git server on my own computer?

I want to use my own server (i.e. 127.0.0.1) when I use the push command. How can I set up my own server?

I’m using MacOS X.

  • Git Svn - Found possible branch point
  • Moving part of a git repository’s history into another repository
  • Rebase many commits to one in Git. What am I doing wrong?
  • Git | Branching model for a large project
  • git-svn dcommit from post-commit with Kerberos
  • Git diff thinks line endings are LF when EOL is set to CRLF in .gitattributes
  • git add . vs git commit -a
  • docker autobuild with git private submodule
  • Bitbucket ssh public key is being denied but their ssh test connects with no issue
  • Git pagination stopped working
  • Point branch to new commit
  • Setup git in Intellij terminal

    You don’t need a server to push to a local repository. You can just use a local file url as indicated in the git-push manual:

    For local repositories, also supported by git natively, the following syntaxes may be used:

    • /path/to/repo.git/
    • file:///path/to/repo.git/

    Mat already provided a correct answer for the common case, but if you want to test networked commits locally, the easiest way is to set up an ssh daemon on your machine (if OSX doesn’t already installs one by default – not sure).

    Once ssh is set up, you can push to any repository on your local machine by setting up a remote:

      git remote add repo-name user@127.0.0.1:/path/to/your/repo
    
      git push repo-name branch-name
    

    Keep in mind that repositories that are intended for pushing to (remotely or locally) should generally be initialized with git init --bare; or at least not have any branch you intend to push checked out in the working tree.
