Git server under FreeBSD

Time comes when big boys wants to build their own private repos to commit or deploy. Well my time has come.

Install git and add users, with your favorite editor

# pkg install git
# git config --global user.name "user"
# git config --global user.email "email"
# git config --global core.editor "ee"
# git config --list

Add to `rc.conf`


Start daemon
service git_daemon start

Install cgi handler
# pkg install fcgiwrap

Add to `rc.conf`

Add new nginx configuration
server {
	listen 80;
	server_name domain;
	return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

server {
	listen 443;
	server_name domain;

	root /home/path-to-root;
    	ssl on;
    	ssl_certificate /usr/local/etc/letsencrypt/live/domain/fullchain.pem;
    	ssl_certificate_key /usr/local/etc/letsencrypt/live/domain/privkey.pem;
    	ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:10m;

	auth_basic "Unauthorized";
	auth_basic_user_file /home/user/git/.passwords;

	location /gitweb.cgi {
        	fastcgi_pass    unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap/fcgiwrap.sock;
        	fastcgi_param 	REMOTE_USER $remote_user;
        	fastcgi_param	  SCRIPT_NAME gitweb.cgi;
		fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/path-to-root/gitweb.cgi;
        	fastcgi_param   DOCUMENT_ROOT /home/path-to-root;
		fastcgi_param	  GITWEB_CONFIG /usr/local/etc/git/gitweb.conf;
		include         fastcgi_params;

    	location / {
		root            /home/path-to-root;
        	index           gitweb.cgi;
        	autoindex       off;

open `/usr/local/etc/git/gitweb.conf` and add path to root directory of git repos
our $projectroot="/home/user/git";

And now it's time to create a new repo
cd /home/user/git
mkdir project-name.git
cd project-name.git
git --bare init

Now you will be able to commit changes on this project.
