How to Install the Latest Version of Git on CentOS 7

Installing the latest version of Git on a CentOS 7 server can be a straightforward process if you use the right repositories. This guide will walk you through the steps to install Git using the Wandisco repository, which typically offers more recent versions of Git.

Steps to Install Git on CentOS 7

 1. Update Your System

It’s always a good practice to start with updating your system’s packages. Run the following command in your terminal:

sudo yum update

2. Add the Wandisco Git Repository 

Wandisco provides a dedicated repository for newer versions of Git. You can add this repository to your system by creating a new repo file with the following commands

sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-git.repo <<eof
name=Wandisco GIT Repository

3. Remove Any Existing Git Installation

If you have an older version of Git installed, it’s a good idea to remove it to prevent any conflicts

sudo yum remove git

4. Install Git from the Wandisco Repository 

With the repository in place, install Git using the following command

sudo yum install git

5. Verify the Installation  

After the installation is complete, you can verify the version of Git installed

git –version

By following these steps, you should be able to install a more up-to-date version of Git on your CentOS 7 system. Wandisco usually keeps up with the latest Git releases, so you can enjoy the newer features and improvements.
