The installation of gitolite is relatively easy on alpine Linux. Bellow is the method to install gitolite on a user account.

  1. Log into root user
  2. apk add perl bash git nano

  3. adduser -s /bin/bash -S git

  4. su - git

  5. On your local machine make a ssh key

    ssh-keygen -t myname.pub

  6. Next run

    scp ~/.ssh/myname.pub git@example.com:myname.pub

    on your local machine
  7. On the remote machine type

    git clone git://github.com/sitaramc/gitolite

  8. gitolite/src/gl-system-install

  9. you will receive an error message, to fix add the path it gives you in a new file called .bash_profile.

    nano /home/git/.bash_profile

  10. add the line and save Ctrl+X
  11. logout and then back into the git user
  12. gl-setup myname.pub

  13. on your local machine you can now

    git clone git@example.com:gitolite-admin

  14. on your local machine you can now edit your config files then commit them and push them back to the server
